The Scot Who Shot the American Civil War

In September 1862, Paisley-born photographer Alexander Gardner took a series of battlefield photographs that shocked America. His images of dead soldiers at Antietam revolutionised the way Americans saw their Civil War.

Gardner would also capture the most revealing portraits of President Abraham Lincoln. Pulitzer prize-winning photojournalist David Hume Kennerly looks back at Gardner's work.
