A Strange and Fearful Interest: Death, Mourning, and Memory in the American Civil War
The Huntington presents its first major exhibition drawn exclusively from its collection of Civil War photography.
Featuring more than 200 works, the exhibition explores how images explained, reflected, and shaped a national fixation on death and mourning, focusing on key episodes to highlight larger cultural issues. The show is supplemented by an exhibition of rare Library materials giving voice to both sides, on why they fought.
