The Civil War was the first American war widely covered by the press, with an estimated 500 reporters from the North and South covering the conflict. Thousands of photographs were taken during the war, and more than 3,000 illustrations and cartoons were published in magazines, along with daily articles and editorials about the conflict as well. As a result, the press played a significant role in the war, just as the war played an important role in the development of the press.
