Rosenthal Encampment Detail














A couple of things here. One, the scans are huge, this is how all images on the web should be. Two, the ability to zoom in really brought home the small details to me.
I was really intrigued by the figures — their groupings, actions and definition in these camp scenes from the American Civil War.
I have greatly reduced the resolution of the scenes here, go to the University of Delaware Library site to appreciate the full set in all its glory.
