The Civil War in color for the first time

9 posts in this topic

Two professional colorists have combined their skills with photographs and fascination with the American Civil War to create a remarkable series of color photographs from the era.

British colorist Jordan Lloyd, 27, met fellow colorist Mads Madsen, 19, from Denmark when he started posting on Madsen's subreddit 'Colorized History'.

Wonderful job, especially the Mark Twain photo. Shame the comment section can't appreciate it.

i love the idea of bringing more life to these pictures. it's odd how color makes people in the pictures seem more real, and less like historic dolls, or similar. i'd like to see this tried with some more pictures of ordinary soldiers, though.

imagine living in the early days of photography, and just how remarkable even a blurry picture would have seemed.

Pictures look so much more vivid in colour, great work.

Very cool. I never knew that Mark Twain served in the Confederate Army.

When I was young I remember thinking that the world was black-and-white back in the day.
