This event has ended.

As the Civil War ravaged the United States, photographers determinedly documented and memorialized the fierce conflict: haunting landscapes strewn with slain soldiers, intimate portraits of armed Union and Confederate recruits preparing to meet their destiny, wearied soldiers resting in expansive army camps, medical studies of the wounded, and portraits of Abraham Lincoln as well as of his assassin, John Wilkes Booth. For the first time ever, the camera recorded a long and ferocious war from beginning to end, not only documenting a brutal test of the young American Republic but also marking a watershed in the history of photography.
