Seventeen Men - opens Feb. 10

U.S. Colored Troops, formed in 1863, played an important role in the Union Army during the Civil War. This installation features the stories and images of a few from the Mid-Atlantic region. A photo album owned by Capt. William A. Prickitt contained 2″ photographic images of 17 men of the 25th USCT, all of whom trained near Philadelphia. Shayne Davidson, a professional illustrator, created enlarged color versions of these black and white photos and compiled bibliographic information.

Exhibit opens February 10. On view through July 1.
