Civil War photography: How I went from a kid’s picture book to a Civil War photograph book
Civil War photographer William B. Lasswell, whose photographs were among the earliest to capture the conflict, has died at the age of 98.
His photographs of the Civil War, published in 1915, have been on display at the National Museum of American History in Washington since 2006.
Lasseswell had a career spanning almost half a century, from the Civil Rights movement to the Vietnam War to the Korean War.
He worked with a wide range of American photographers, including Erskine Caldwell, Frank Mancini, George Seldes, John Lewis and others.
In the 1920s and ’30s, he photographed African-American servicemen, many of whom later became civil rights leaders.
His work on the front lines of the conflict was often critical and he also documented the atrocities committed by the Confederacy.
A portrait of the late George Washington, a portrait of Abraham Lincoln and an image of Thomas Jefferson were among Lassescom’s most iconic images.
In addition to his photographs, Lassescoos photos were used as reference material in numerous books, including a series by the Pulitzer Prize-winning Pulitzer Prize winning author John W. Whitehead.
Civil War photography is a subject that fascinates the National Park Service.
They have commissioned Lassescroll to preserve the Civil Wars photograph collection at the Smithsonian Institution, and in April, the service announced that it had awarded a grant of up to $3.4 million to help preserve some of the historic photographs.
In an interview with The New York Times, Lasscroll told the newspaper that his career in photography began when he was 11 years old.
He recalled being “very happy to have a photo book that I could turn into a book.”
Lassescock was born in Washington, D.C., in 1924 and was raised in a family of book collectors.
He moved to Baltimore in 1932, where he worked as a photojournalist.
After graduating from college in 1933, he went to work for the Associated Press, where his work appeared in the daily newspaper’s daily photography section.
He then moved on to become the assistant photographer for the Washington Post, where, in 1941, he joined the bureau’s bureau of photography, which eventually evolved into the National Archives.
Lassingcroll’s career in photojournalism spanned almost half of the 20th century.
He was also involved in the Vietnam war, covering events from the Vietnam era to the war’s aftermath.
LASSSCOLLS PHOTOS: THE HISTORY OF PHOTOJOURNALISM (1928) In 1928, LASSSCOLLS photojournalists spent most of their time working in Vietnam, the Philippines and Vietnam’s border regions.
In one of his earliest photos, a child stands in front of a statue of the Confederacy in the city of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, during a visit to the city by US President Franklin Roosevelt.
LESSON: “I always thought of my father as a young boy who was a little bit of an eccentric.
He would sit in the back of his house, and there was a book on the table that he would sit down on, and I think that was his hobby.
And so I think of him as sort of an old man in the hobby of his childhood.
And I think he was interested in history and he was curious about the world.
And that’s what I think I did.”

In 1929, Lassecroll moved to Los Angeles and began working on his book.
The book would eventually become his masterpiece, a collection of photographs from the years 1928 to 1934 that would become known as Lassscoll’s Photographs.
Lassscolls photographs are among the most iconic of American history, capturing the American experience from the dawn of the country to the Civil war.
LASTSCOCKS PHOTO: A LESSONS HISTORY (1935) The collection of Lassesscolls photographs was published by the National Zoological Society in 1936.
After its release, the collection went on to be a best seller.
In 1937, the National Parks Service bought the collection and the collection was moved to the National Film Registry in the National Arboretum in Maryland.
LISSONS PHOTAGRAPHY: THE LIFE OF J.E. LADMORE (1940) Lasscock was not only a photographer, he was also an advocate for the rights of the American people, a strong supporter of women, the environment and racial equality.
