Friends & Brothers Captured Together During the American Civil War

 This collection of 19th century photographs was taken during the American Civil War. They are pictures of unknown soldiers who chose to be captured with a friend or brother because of too many odds they would never see each other again.

The striking element giving the photographs a more poignant and sentimental note is the display of affection between the soldiers; They can be seen holding hands, clasping arms, or draping arms over their shoulders.
