Event description

Description

The Civil War was the first war to be extensively photographed and, for the first time in history, the public was exposed to real-life images of the gruesome toll of battle. Today, historians, teachers and preservationists use these photographs to better understand American history and to restore battlefields. Although the majority of these photos were taken in a few eastern states, western Civil War sites were extensively covered as well. Through then-and-now techniques, tight details and several other approaches Garry will tell the story of the Civil War in the West in a manner available nowhere else. From Charleston to Chattanooga, Port Hudson to Pensacola, and from Savannah to Nashville, Shiloh and the Shirley House, explore the War in the West and the photos that defined it.

Tickets are available online, or by calling the Heritage Center at 717-334-6245
