Along with Between the States are contemporary photographs selected by Alison Nordström, the Museum's Curator of Photographs, dealing with the legacy of the Civil War. Still Here: Contemporary Artists and the Civil War, including recent work by William Earle Williams, Willie Anne Wright, and Oscar Palacio, traces the history of the Civil War to the present, presenting reenactments and Civil War sites in ways that were not possible in the 1860s.

With the rare glimpse into history that these extraordinary photographs provide, there is something for the young historian and Civil War enthusiast alike.
