The year 2011 marked the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War. Over 30,000 acres of land was purchased in an effort to preserve historic battlefield sites. Thousands of people dressed in period uniforms to reenact specific battles and events. New books were written, iPhone Battle Apps were created, and bloggers typed furiously to debunk and debate controversies surrounding the war’s history and myths.

In the absence of literal fighting and bloodshed, General Lee is proven right; a profound fondness of war lives in the South. The photographs of Civil Conundrum present a contrast to the fondness by depicting the sadness, loneliness and death often obscured in the midst of contemporary affection.
