Photography and the Civil War

August 24 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Saturday, August 24  |  10:00am – 2:30pm  |  Instructor: David Rambow  |  $24 ($30 for non-members)  |  Register Here

One Tintype Sitting: $72 ($90 for non-members)  |  Register Here

Join Historian and wet-plate photographer David Rambow for a deep dive into Civil War photography. Learn about wet-plate photography, tintypes, carte de vista, and what these artifacts reveal about the era. Following the lecture, you can have your own tintype portrait taken by Rambow to cherish as a piece of photography history.

The introduction of photography enabled the documentation of army camps and battlefields, exposing viewers to the unfiltered truths of war. These images depicted the brutal aftermath of conflict, evoking a palpable sense of reality and immediacy that shattered any idealized perceptions of war’s grandeur.

*The lecture and tintype sitting experience are separate ticketed events. Each person in your group should purchase a ticket for the lecture. If you wish to include a tintype sitting, only one tintype seating ticket is required per group.
