The year is 1865. This week, American Photo Colorizing.com blog is continuing its special feature on daguerreotype photos of the American Civil War. Robert E. Lee stands on a porch in Richmond, Virginia – posing for photographer, Mathew Brady. It’s late April. President Lincoln was assassinated only days before. You can see the war-weariness on the Generals face.

By all accounts Lee was a good and decent man, who was known to pray at night for the Union Army soldiers, as well as for his own men. He also believed that slavery should be abolished. Six months after the Civil War ended, Robert E. Lee became president of Washington College (now Washington and Lee University) – where he served until his death in 1870.

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!
