LINK OF THE WEEK 19march2013 Center for Civil War Photography

The Center for Civil War Photography is an excellent site for researching Civil War subjects in original photographs. The CCWP is a non-profit organization devoted to one of the most exciting and compelling areas of Civil War scholarship and discovery. New photographic finds from our nation's greatest conflict are still being made on a regular basis. Nearly every Civil War soldier had his photograph taken by one of the more than 5,000 American photographers active at the time, and a select group of documentary photographers took thousands of images on the battlefields and in the army camps, often in 3D.

Within this site you will find basic and complex information about Civil War photography and its practioners, as well as reproductions of many war photos. You can also see information about the CCWP and how you can help. There's also a page of handy links to other online Civil War photography resources.
