A page of history is worth a volume of logic.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Live that page of history!
Meet and interact with the people who made that history.
Experience what they saw and did from their viewpoint.
Ask them the questions you wish someone had asked them then.

Alexander Gardner

Talk to Alexander Gardner, the man who photographed the American Civil War; who captured more photographs of Lincoln than any other photographer; who documented the western expansion with pictures of a proposed continental rail route through Kansas to California; who created photo-journalism; and who started a Utopian colony and benevolent insurance services. Alex may also give a lecture on stereo photography!
