Today I stumbled upon a website with quite a large collection of old photos from the 19th century and really early 20th century. The site contains several collections, including a Civil War collection and an Old West collection.

A couple of my favorites come from the Civil War collection and are posted below:

President Lincoln at Antietam

President Lincoln at Antietam

I really like this photo of President Lincoln at Antietam because shows Lincoln in a semi-private moment which is a rarity among the photographs taken of President Lincoln during his presidency.



I suppose I like this one for more morbid reasons. Perhaps because it shows a darker side of the war.

In any case, I would take a look through the collection of old photos, located here: There is also a blog that goes along with it that I would also take a look at.

How would you rate this post?
