Join us as we welcome Garry Adelman for a lively and multi-dimensional Gettysburg Civil War photography extravaganza. The Civil War was the first war to be extensively photographed and, for the first time in history, the public was exposed to real-life images of the gruesome toll of battle. Through then-and-now photographs, as well as 3-D (and even 4-D) techniques, Mr. Adelman will tell the story of the Civil War via the intensive and revolutionary wet-plate photography process and the truly unique individuals involved in the birth of photojournalism. Learn how early photographs were made, used, distributed and, thus, how they changed our understanding of the American Civil War. The latest photo-related discoveries and scholarship will be covered.

Gettysburg National Military Park is located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and is covered frequently by the Gettysburg Daily, with stories related to the Gettysburg Campaign and the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863.
