Images of the American Civil War Images of the American Civil War: Photographs, Posters, and Ephemera presents 50,000 contemporaneous photographs at completion, including nearly 30,000 wartime recruiting posters, envelopes, and ephemera. These dramatic images present a historical account of the war—and a view of nineteenth-century America more broadly—from social, military, and political perspectives. This database’s extensive organization and indexing let you go directly to images covering casualties, home life, prisons, hospitals, posters, weaponry, transportation, political and military leaders, and other broad topics; easily move from one image to others associated with the same battle or campaign; find images by place, photographer, or publisher; or even locate pictures by setting (interior, exterior, or studio photographs).
