Very interesting. That would make more sense. Phreaner took a few early photos of the battlefield (1867) but not enough to justify him having a photograph wagon. It was not until around 1877 when the Pen Mar area became a tourist attraction that he and Recher both started taking a lot of outdoor photos, mostly stereoviews. And with Tipton shooting at Antietam in 1877 and with the dedication of Antietam National Cemetery in 1880, their focus shifted towards that area. Great research. Thanks.
Looking forward to your book.
