The Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in US history. It was also the first war to be extensively documented through photography. This exhibition of photographs organized by the Morris Museum of Art from the Julia J. Norrell Collection includes vintage prints from some of the most prominent Civil War photographers - George N. Barnard, Alexander Gardner, Timothy H. O’Sullivan, and Mathew Brady’s Studio. Shadows of History will feature examples of early photographic processes including albumen silver prints, tintypes, and ambrotypes.
