    Library of Congress: Liljenquist Collection

    This is a show that opens on April 12 at the Library of Congress:

    http://myloc.gov/exhibitions/civilwa...s/default.aspx

    This exhibition, drawn from a recent gift from the Liljenquist family, will feature 379 Civil War-era ambrotypes and tintypes of enlisted Union and Confederate soldiers. These exceptional portraits document Civil War uniforms, hats, guns, swords, belt buckles, canteens, and musical instruments and include significant representation of African American troops and the families of soldiers. The exhibition will bring new attention to the war as a seminal event in American history and put a human face on both sides of the wrenching conflict.
    I haven't been but would be interested in going...

    Thank for bringing this up. I do not have a great desire to see this exhibit.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
