One of the greatest collection of photos we have in our nation's history is a group of over 1,000 tintypes and daguerrotypes of both Union and CSA soldiers from 1861-1864. The Library of Congress has made them available to the public, and we wanted to share some of our favorites. Scroll down and hit Next Page to see the full collection.
