Johan, you said --

A couple well known examples were the famous "Punch Bowl" photos of ANV men captured in the last mos of the war and the Three defiant Prisoners at Gettysburg. The Gettysburg pic in particular was interesting for the analysis... they were stragglers... quite well clad, shod & fed.

Are you speaking about the scene that was replicated in the movie "Gettysburg" when Lt. Chamberlain chatted with the Tennessee boys captured in the railroad cut?

I had no idea that any photographers were that close to the combat zones during the battle.  I believe that image was a drawing by Winslow Homer, rather than a photograph.  He called it "Prisoners from the Front."
