Good Sunday Morning to you all! This week we are going to be looking at some pioneers in the field of photography. Most of us consider Mathew Brady as the photographer to first document a way.

The Crimean War predated the Civil War by about 10 years, and was a war between France, England, Russia and the Ottoman Empire, among others.
