        This photo really should be more famous.

        Photo of fighting at La Moncelle, 1st September 1870, during the battle of Sedan ( Franco-Prussian War ). This is considered the first combat photograph ever taken.



        This is a photo taken at La Moncelle, a small village north of Bazeilles, on 1st September 1870, and later published as a postcard. It has been taken looking eastwards and shows what appear to be Saxon ( or Prussian ) infantry engaged in a firefight against French troops. Casualties litter the road on the right of the picture, there are several along the firing line and a man at the right end of the line has just been hit. Two columns of infantry can be seen on the road to the rear. The house at the bottom right of the picture has clearly been under fire, and there are what look possibly like pools of blood on the ground in front of it.
        There are two lines of German ( Prussian or Saxon ) skirmishers. Both lines are facing the camera ( French position ).
