Civil War Exhibition Opens Soon

Our next exhibition, Between the States: Photographs of the American Civil War from the George Eastman House Collection opens Friday, Dec. 19th. This one-of-a-kind exhibition features well over 100 images taken during the Civil War by photographers like Mathew Brady, James Gardner, and George Barnard. They tell the story of the war, from the significant battles to the assassination of President Lincoln. Also, we are including a large collection of artifacts with origins right here in Tyler. Here are some images you will see:

Gardner Booth 1 John Wilkes Booth.

Gardner Corbett 1  Sgt. Boston Corbett.

Lincoln carte-de-visite President Abraham Lincoln.
