|Civil War Photograph Digitization Project Completed|
The Tulane Digital Library, under the direction of Jeff Rubin, has completed a six-month project to digitize more than 1,000 photographs, lithographs, and drawings from the Louisiana Historical Association depicting the Civil War and Reconstruction, and they are all now available online.
Subjects include political leaders, soldier and regimental portraits, veterans’ organizations, and forts and battlefields. Also included are images pertaining to the Army of Northern Virginia and the Washington Artillery. Many images are unique and record the work of noted New Orleans photographers.
The images are only one part of LaRC’s vast Civil War holdings, which include the papers of Jefferson Davis, the Gettysburg letters of Robert E. Lee, the papers of Albert Sidney Johnston, and the papers of Stonewall Jackson.
