This summer, Camp History at the New-York Historical Society was all about the Civil War. Twenty-one precocious campers had the unforgettable experience of going behind-the-scenes at the Museum and Library to speak with museum and Civil War experts; styling and posing in their very own tintype photographs; and putting together and starring in their very own museum exhibition.  Check out some photos from Camp History below!
