Three Confederate Prisoners of War - Gettysburg 1863 - Courtesy of the National Library of Congress

"Years ago I first saw this famous photograph of three Confederate prisoners of war captured after the Battle of Gettysburg while researching my family's geneaology during the Civil War era in the state of Mississippi. Seeing this photograph inspired me toward a deep passion for discovering and understanding the meaning of found photographs. The photographer of the photograph is unknown. The names of the three soilders are unknown. More than 140 years after the photograph was taken it still resonates with the powerful mystery of a multitude of unanswered questions." - James W. Bailey
