Re: Armed Confederates in Frederick
I've been told that the original plate is in private hands and that there have only been a couple of "contact prints" made. Most of the prints that are available are copies of copies. I know of one of the contact prints locally and will try to get it scanned and posted.
“The initial or easy tendency in looking at history is to see it through hindsight. In doing that, we remove the fact that living historical actors at that time…didn’t yet know what was going to happen. We cannot understand the decisions they made unless we understand how they perceived the world they were living in and the choices they were facing.”-Christopher Browning
