Modern Photography: Outdoor Classrooms

our-favorite-modern-civil-war-photoscamera-up-closeWe rounded up some photos from Emerging Civil War’s last five years and wanted to share some images of ECW members or fans touring battlefields.

This photo essay reflects the important role of battlefields as “outdoor classrooms” and hallowed ground. May we continue to preserve these battlegrounds and inspirational places for the generations to come…and advance education and understanding of the fight for freedom.
