Slave Auction

Here for your browsing pleasure is an extraordinary photo of ["Auction & Negro Sales," Whitehall Street]. It was made in 1864 by Barnard, George N., 1819-1902.

The photo documents Photograph of the War in the West. These photographs are of Sherman in Atlanta, September-November, 1864. After three and a half months of incessant maneuvering and much hard fighting, Sherman forced Hood to abandon the munitions center of the Confederacy. Sherman remained there, resting his war-worn men and accumulating supplies, for nearly two and a half months. During the occupation, George N. Barnard, official photographer of the Chief Engineer's Office, made the best documentary record of the war in the West; but much of what he photographed was destroyed in the fire that spread from the military facilities blown up at Sherman's departure on November 15.

We have compiled this collection of photos mainly to serve as a vital educational resource. Contact
