They could be either slippers or spats.

Butler, although a brilliant lawyer, was a mediocre general who later took a leading role in the impeachment proceedings against President Andrew Johnson.

About this image

About this Publication Title

Brady Civil War Photos

Mathew B Brady and many of the decade's best photographers created the photographs in this collection. There are detailed portraits of notable men of the era, as well as photos of soldiers, living and dead, battlefields, scarred landscapes, and cities burned and bombed by invading troops. They portray the horrors of war and images of life in camp. They represent photojournalism in its infancy and present us with real-life interpretations of our nation at war with itself.
