  • BACKSTORY: Alexander Gardner (October 17, 1821 – December 10, 1882) was a Scottish photographer who is best known for his photographs of the American Civil War, U.S.President Abraham Lincoln, and the execution of the conspirators to Lincoln's assassination. Upon visiting The Great Exhibition in 1851 in Hyde Park, London, he saw the photography of American Mathew Brady. In 1856, Alex and his family immigrated to the United States. He initiated contact with Brady and came to work for him that year, continuing until 1862. At first, Gardner specialized in making large photographic prints, called Imperial photographs, but as Brady’s eyesight began to fail, Gardner took on increasing responsibilities. Abraham Lincoln became the American President in the November 1860 election and along with his election came the threat of war. Gardner, being in Washington, was well-positioned for these events, and his popularity rose as a portrait photographer, capturing the images of soldiers leaving for war.
