A new exhibit at the Northeast Georgia History Center lets you step back in time to view images from the Civil War.

“Portraits in Grey” is a collection of 70 images from the collection of David Wynn Vaughan depicting Confederate soldiers and Georgia Military Academy cadets. Vaughan’s collection includes most of the known existing images of the cadets from the Civil War era.

It was developed by the Kennesaw Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History at the exhibit at Gainesville’s history center represents the first time the collection has been displayed outside that venue.

Information is included with each image that details information about the photograph itself and sometimes what happened to those soldiers depicted in the images.

The exhibit will be on display in the history center’s rotating gallery through June 27.
