Posted on: 07/21/2012
There are many imgaes of people taken around the time of the Civil War that with hindsight are profound in some someway.  Today's image of a civilian however, may well have been taken with some symbolism in mind.



The binding of the book this elderly woman is resting on reads "The History of Slavery."
