Peninsula Photo Extravaganza!
with Garry Adelman

Description: Join Garry Adelman for a lively Civil War photography presentation covering all manner of events and people on the Virginia Peninsula. Using then-and-now techniques and by zooming deep into period photographs, Mr. Adelman will tell the story of the Civil War in and east of Richmond from 1861 to 1865 and beyond. From Fort Monroe to Fort Darling, from Lee’s Mill to Gaines’s Mill and from the Battle of the Ironclads to the fall of Richmond and beyond, learn how numerous photographers recorded more photos in this area than any other outside Washington, D.C. and how and photographs can help deepen our understanding of the American Civil War and its aftermath.
