Examination of the similarities between two records of the American Civil War: one photographic and the other literary, by Mathew Brady and Stephen Crane respectively. There is not only a difference in medium between the two, but also a difference in time (over thirty years) and status (documentary vs. fïction). The fact that there are nevertheless similarities between the two reveals that both sender and receiver play an important role.----Onderstaande tekst is gebaseerd op een lezing van de auteur uit 1996. De tekst zal dit jaar verschijnen in een bundel bij de Duitse uitgever Campus Verlag. Kroes gaat op zoek naar de overeenkomsten tussen twee verslagleggingen van de Amerikaanse Burgeroorlog: een fotografische en een literaire, van respectievelijk Mathew Brady en Stephen Crane. Ze verschillen niet alleen in medium, maar ook in tijd (een dikke dertig jaar) en status (documentair versus fictief). In het feit dat er desondanks overeenkomsten zijn, spelen zender en ontvanger beiden een belangrijke rol.
