After documenting Civil War battlefields, this young photographer participated in two amazing and dangerous expeditions to America’s largely uninhabited west.  From 1867 to 1869 and, again, from 1871-1874, his photographs were among the first to record prehistoric ruins, Navajo weavers, and the Grand Canyon.  His capture of the untamed land combined science and art and were made quite often under extraordinary physical duress.  Be with us as we document the priceless work of America’s forgotten photographer.

Lecturer: Fred W. Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT) leads our NC History field-study programs and teaches several GAA courses each semester. He is the creator of the field guide The Civil War: A History of the War Between the States (Workman) and has two degrees from UNC, a bachelor’s in history and a master of arts in teaching with an emphasis in history.
