Helena Zinkham, chief of the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress, wears white gloves to hold up a tintype photograph, circa 1861, of Sgt. Andrew Martin Chandler of the 44th Mississippi Regiment, left, and Silas Chandler, right, which was recently donated to the Library of Congress. An enigmatic Civil War photo of a white man and a black slave, both in Confederate uniforms, has been donated to the Library of Congress. The Washington Post reports that the tintype image made in 1861 was donated by collector Tom Liljenquist of McLean, Virginia, who bought it from descendants of the white soldier.
