NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) — Some rarely seen images from the Civil War are on display in Virginia.

The Mariners' Museum has opened a show that features more than 120 photographs from the George Eastman Collection. The exhibit at the Newport News attraction runs through April 27.

The photographs capture Civil War battlefields, prisons and fortress interiors. They were taken by pioneering photographers from the era, including Mathew Brady.

The Civil War was the first conflict in which photography loomed large. For the first time, the American public could view images from the battlefield and the destruction brought on by the war.
