Exploring how photography documented the Civil War, this exhibition included more than thirty works by some of the most prominent photographers of the day—George Barnard, Mathew Brady, and Isaac H. Bonsall, among others. From tinytype and ambrotype portraits to rare images of African American regiments, this show highlights themes of human devastation and the impact of war on the landscape and its people. Shadows of History was organized by Philip Brookman and Kaitlin Booher at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and was drawn from the collection of Washington, D.C., collector Julia J. Norrell. In addition, a catalogue, Shadows of History, was produced by the Morris Museum of Art.
