4 Gardner, Alexander. Home of A Rebel Sharpshooter, Gettysburg, July Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Virginia. A century after its publication, photographic analysis suggested that Gardner had manipulated the setting of at least one of his Civil War photos by moving a soldier's corpse and weapon into more dramatic positions. One of his most famous images, "Home of a Rebel Sharpshooter", has been argued to be a fabrication. This argument, first put forth by William Frassanito in 1975, goes this way: Gardner and his assistants dragged the sniper's body 40 yards into the more photogenic surroundings of the Devil's Den to create a better composition. Frassanito acknowledged that the manipulation of photographic settings in the early years of photography was not frowned upon. Alexander Gardner was Chief Army Photographer under General McClellan of the United States Army during the American civil war. Consider: Author Subject Audience
