Between the States: Photographs of the American Civil War

18 September 2015

Coinciding with the 150 year anniversary of “Mr Lincoln’s War,” the George Eastman House draws from its distinguished photography collection to chronicle and document this searing conflict.  Presenting photographs by Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, George Barnard and others, this exhibition displays haunting battle scenes, temporary fortifications, destroyed buildings, wounded and abandoned soldiers, as well as portraits of Civil War personalities and individual soldiers.

A small complementary exhibition also in the Braucher Gallery offers vintage photographs from the period on loan from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. 

The exhibition is scheduled to coincide with Carleton courses on the American Civil War, and the History of Photography.
