Rick Rhodes Photography & Imaging has fully restored 16 images of Charleston, South Carolina taken in 1865 made available by the Library of Congress. As the Civil War closed, photographers, with their wagons and cumbersome large cameras in tow, came to record the flag raising ceremony at Fort Sumter, South Carolina on April 14, 1865. This ceremony marked the fourth anniversary of the surrender of Fort Sumter to Federal troops. While in the area these photographers also documented Federal and Confederate forts as well as the City of Charleston.
