Alexander Gardner Photo Sold at Nate D. Sanders

Alexander Gardner was hired as an assistant by photographer Mathew Brady in 1856. Once the Civil War broke out in 1861, he began assisting Brady with documenting the war. Brady failed for give Alexander Gardner credit for his work, so Gardner began documenting the war independently in 1863 and opened his own portrait studio. Gardner is also known as the official photographer of the Union Pacific Railroad as well as capturing images of Native Americans of the Great Plains.
