Rare Civil War photos capture America’s greatest war
In 1943 the Library of Congress purchased a collection of over 7,000 of rare Civil War photographs for archival purposes, many of which recently became digitally available on their website. This is a collection of some of our favorites, from the first war ever captured by photographs.
