Civil War Era Photography and Equipment Presentation
CIVIL WAR ERA PHOTOGRAPHY AND EQUIPMENT WITH DR. ROBERT LISLE
Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 6pm
Beaufort District Collection, 311 Scott St, 2nd Floor Lobby
Photography was just 20 years young when rumblings of the upcoming Civil
War could be heard about the country. The photographic recording of
this tragic American conflict was the work of some 300 men whose images
captured the faces, places and events for the world to see. This brief
presentation focuses on several select photographers and their pictures
and how they made them. Also on display will be some of the actual tools
of the photographic trade during the Civil War era, a few of which will remain on display in the Beaufort District Collection Research Room display case through the rest of September.
