The year is 1865. It’s May 23-24. The American Civil War ended just 6 weeks ago. And a mere 5 weeks ago, the life of a president was ended. It’s been a tough four years for the divided nation. But now, it’s ‘Miller Time’ . . . . more or less. Washington, DC let its hair down for a two-day “Grand Review of the Armies”.

Just as The Beatles served as the happy antidote for an America still mourning the loss of its youthful president 98 years later – the Grand Review of the Armies was a celebration to help lift the spirits of a nation’s capitol still reeling from the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Ahead lay the long and winding road to reconciliation.

The year is 1850. Here’s a marvelous daguerreotype of an unknown Boston woman, taken by Southworth & Hawes. As you can see, the clarity is amazing for 164 years ago.

Welcome to American Photo Colorizing .com’s photo blog. Visit our website at http://www.americanphotocolorizing.com

The year is 1853. Seth Eastman, a reknown illustrator of Native American life, poses atop Dighton Rock in Massachusetts. The strange writings adorning the rock have been the subject of speculation since the late 1600s, when it was discovered. The most likely explanation is that the markings were inscribed by Portuguese sailors. Dighton Rock’s markings include the Portuguese Coat of Arms, three crosses, the name of the ship’s captain – Miguel Corte Real, and the date 1511. Mystery solved?
