Many of the items concern the Civil War, such as a picture of Andersonville prison camp and maps of Sherman's campaign in Georgia. Also included are images of African American slaves and Civil War era African Americans in the south.
Most images are from the 19th century, though several are from the 20th century and a few herald from the 18th century.
