    In the Civil War many of the photos weren't graphic enough, so the photographer posed the dead soldiers in positions they never occupied, with guns they didn't have, in order to sell more photos.  Most people who are familiar with the Civil War know these pictures and believe that they really represent what actually happened.  

    One would hope that 150 years later we might have learned something.
