American
1819 , d. 1902

Opened up his own daguerreotype studio and became well-known for portraits, then became one of Brady's Boys and helped document the Civil War, traveling with William Tecumseh Sherman on his campaigns. Captured scenes of the aftermath in the South. His studio burned down in the great Chicago fire of 1871, but he quickly purchased new supplies and photographed the fire's still smoking destruction. Opened a studio in Charleston in 1873 and did commercial work, but also photographed black workers in the South during the reconstruction.
