Civil War Photography Extravaganzain Washington D.C. June 13


Come and join the particularly enthusiastic Garry Adelman for a photographic tour of the Civil War. Photographs are a key primary source that assist in understanding the conflict; and when grasping the aims and methods of the photographers and pairing their images with modern photos taken at the same place, the impact is even more valuable.

The Civil War was the first war to be extensively photographed. It saw the real birth of photojournalism, technological innovations, the first photos of American dead soldiers and a public impact that cannot be overstated. Through then and now, 3-D and even 4-D techniques, Adelman will present the Civil War in a manner available nowhere else.

The program will take place Thursday, June 13, 2013 – 2:30pm at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in room 209.  We look forward to having you join us.  Please feel free to contact Ben Coburn with any questions.
