There's a story from the Forbidden Zone about Yankees
capturing a map of Confederate positions from a Confederate
officer and copying it by a "fast" photographic process:
They simply laid the map over a photographic plate, out
in the mid-day sun. When the plate was developed, they
had a negative of the map, and of course multiple copies
could be made from the one exposed plate.
