Striking a Pose: Civil War Photographers

Untold Civil War

May 3 2022 • 36 mins


I sit with Mike Medhurst who has been actively buying and selling antique photography for more than 35 years. He is currently the President of the Daguerreian Society and an avid collector. On this episode we discuss the pioneers of photography who would document the conflict for ages to come.
