Presented by the the Library of Congress, this digital archive contains the collection of photographs of rank-and-file Civil War soldiers, both Union and Confederate, amassed since the 1990s by the Liljenquist family. Donated to the library, the collection is of interest to the public, students, and teachers, but also to researchers interested in a range of features in the photograph from the common to the unique. Rare images include Navy personnel, African–American soldiers, and portraits with families. In addition to the ambrotypes and tintypes, the collection also includes several manuscripts, patriotic envelopes, photographs on paper, and artifacts related to the Civil War. Entries include meta tagging linking to similar portraits, as well as downloadable enlarged images. Additionally, the collection is fully searchable.
