Center of the Cedar Mountain Battlefield. Timothy O'Sullivan, 1862.
Panoramic view from the center of the battlefield of Cedar Mountain. Timothy O’Sullivan, 1862. This iconic image of the battlefield is cropped and edited in photoshop. Like most of these historic images, the original format was a stereo view. I separated the two images into right and left, and then photo-merged them in photoshop. This expanded the field of view a little bit on both the right and left sides of the image. It reveals amazing detail. Click to view larger in a new tab.

Cedar Mountain, Va.  Union Graves on the Battlefield. Timothy O’Sullivan, 1862.

James Fillebrown, Unknown, Capt. James Black, Capt. William Knowlton, Band Master Daniel Chandler and Asst. Surgeon Josiah Day.  Click the image to view larger in a new tab.
