So often, images of the American South from the nineteenth-century show a landscape littered with wounded and scarred by battle. This photograph, from the Library of Congress Prints and Photography Division, shows the more neutral scene of women and children by a fountain in Central Park, Savannah, Georgia in 1865. It’s fun to compare the image, if you like, to this modern promotional photo of the same park.
