Witness the US Civil War through the treasured favorite images of three top experts — collector Kevin Canberg, auctioneer/historian Wes Cowan, and noted collector/dealer Mike Medhurst.
Discover a view of the nation-shaping conflict that’s more personal, more intimate, and often more spirited than the widely circulated photographs of Brady, Gardner, and Barnard.
See spectacular ambrotypes, tintypes, CDVs and other images that allow a few privileged private collectors to own a unique connection to the Civil War — pieces of history that can be held in the palm of the hand.
You’ll be amazed by these seldom-seen images — and hear for yourself how top collectors and dealers select and evaluate the rarest of the rare in Civil War photography.
