Library of Congress Acquires Collection of Civil War Images

The Library of Congress recently took ownership of more than 500 rare Civil War images when 87-year-old Robin Stanford delivered her stereograph images from her collection to the library.

“They’re just tremendously significant,” Bob Zeller, president of the Center for Civil War Photography, told the Washington Post. “These are not post-war … or after Union occupation. These are actual scenes of slavery in America.”

You can view the 77 of the images online now at the Library of Congress.

Here are a few of my favorites:
