View of the Destruction of the American City of Columbia, George N. Barnard, 1863 - 1866

albumen print, h 255mm × w 357mm More details

A ravaged Arcadia, this is what Bernard seems to have wanted to portray in his scenes full of ruins and buildings riddled with bullet holes from the American Civil War. This view of the decimated main street in the once lively city of Columbia leaves nothing to the imagination. After the war Barnard published the photograph as part of the costly edition Photographic Views of Sherman’s Campaign.
