This is a fascinating story.  This man has collected over 700 portrait photos of US & Confederate soldiers, as well as civilians.  An amazing array of people from that period.
 
The newspaper article has some of the photos in a gallery you can view.
 
If you want to see MORE photos, try the Library of Congress website link here.  It is a vast array.  You can click on one photo to enlarge it.
