Soldiers of the Civil War Volume 1. More than 280 special portrait photographs, called ambrotypes and tintypes, represent both Union and Confederate soldiers during the American Civil War (1861-1865). The photographs often show weapons, hats, canteens, musical instruments, painted backdrops, and other details that enhance the research value of the collection. Due to the way the originals were scanned, each image had to be masked by hand in Photoshop to adjust the tonality properly. They were then saved as 300 DPI jpegs. See a comparison below.
