The year is 1865. War is not pretty – and, this photo is not meant for the faint-hearted. Here black slaves gather body parts from the battlefield. Grave diggers prepare for the burial of the victims of the Battle of Cold Harbor in Virginia. One can only imagine why the corpses had remained unburied nearly a year after the battle. Such a gruesome task.

At American Photo Colorizing, our goal is to shred the black & white veil that separates us from the exciting, vibrant lives of those who came before us. It’s time to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos. Your ancestors are counting on you!
