History in Color!!!9:06 AM
I am such a huge fan of history, I find it absolutely fascinating so I spend a lot of my free time either reading books about it, or searching online and looking through old photographs.
So the other day, I was on the internet and was looking up photographs from the Civil War, when I landed on a website that took me completely by surprise.....in a good way.
A group of artists and amateur historians are taking pictures from The Library of Congress and giving them new life.
Together with historians, they look for hints in the old photographs that will help them refurbish the photos and give us a spectacular look into the past.
I'm flabbergasted, and I'm excited to have found this website. I spent a good hour last night just going through all the beautiful photos.
I could just stay here and share all these stunning photos, but you must go on over and take a look for yourself.
Kudos to these amazing artists!
