Civil War dead - posed photo

I'm using this image as a case study for how Flickr's annotation feature might be useful for historians. The original photo is from the Library of Congress and is available at For more on this photo, and how it is posed, see David Lowe and Philip Shiman, “Substitute for a Corpse,” Civil War Times 49, no. 6 (2010): 40-41.
