  • Civil War photographs on display in Atlanta

    Posting to alert forum participants in or near Atlanta that two important Civil War images will be on display to the public for a short time before they are sold at auction. The items are from a private collection and are likely to be sold to a collector and this may the only time they are available for public viewing.

    The first is an early ambrotype of Jefferson Davis from his time as Senator for Mississippi before the onset of the war. The second is a tintype of Confederate General John Bell Hood, who was the youngest man to lead an army on either side of the Civil War. They will be on display at Peachtree & Bennett’s showroom in the Atlanta Expo Center from 10am to 5pm from Wednesday, April 6 through Saturday, April 9.
