the american civil war

This gallery contains photographs of events that occurred during the American Civil War. It includes portraits of soldiers, photographs of the aftermath of battle, and pictures of Union and Confederate camps. This gallery consists entirely of photographs.

This is a photograph of President Lincoln taken near Antietam, the location of one of the bloodiest battles of the American Civil War. This piece of art shows the importance and power of Abraham Lincoln. The Union was found victorious only two weeks later and this was a critical point of the war, and that is why I chose this to be a part of the exhibition.
This photograph was taken after the Battle of Antietam. This clearly depicts the brutality of the Civil war and how many lives were lost. That is why I chose this piece of art for the exhibition.
This photograph was taken after the battle of Gettysburg, and shows multiple soldiers dead in a field. Like the previous photograph this shows the brutality of the American Civil war. That is why I chose this work for the exhibition.
This photograph depicts the average Confederate soldier in uniform. This helps to show the typical portrait at the time of the American Civil War. That is why I chose this work for the exhibition.
This is a photograph of the Confederate Army's fortifications at Atlanta, Georgia. It gives an idea of the weaponry used at the time and shows a contrast between today's technology. That is why I chose this piece to be in the exhibition.
This is a portrait of Robert Edward Lee. He was the one of the most important generals to the Confederate States of America. This man played a major role in the American Civil War, and that is why I chose this portrait to be in the exhibition.
This is a photograph of Ulysses S. Grant. He was the most powerful general in the Union Army and was a significant factor in the Union's victory. That is why I chose this piece for the exhibition.
This photograph shows fallen soldiers after the Battle f Gettysburg. Although it is similar to another piece in this exhibition, I included it to emphasize the violence of each Civil War battle.
