The photograph is one of the most famous of the war , the three captured rebel soldiers standing next to a fence.  NOT the Winslow Homer painting.

Second the photos of Grant and his staff was NOT taken by Gardner but Timothy O Sullivan from the second story of the church though a window

Thirdly people did not smile in pictures as they had to hold a pose for a period of time to expose the film.  Much easier to sit without smiling than to try and smile for a number of minutes.   Had nothing to do with bad teeth or solemn occasion .
