Photographs taken during and shortly after the war help us to understand, preserve and rehabilitate the battlefield landscape. In the 1880's a photographer recorded a series of views of Malvern Hill to accompany Civil War articles published in Century magazine. In this image the cameraman stood here to capture the sloping fields across which the Confederates attacked. Notice the slave cabins to the left and the largely treeless landscape. Recent scene restoration has made this comparison more effective.
