Do you still know your history? Today is the 150th anniversary of the US Civil War, which is considered as the bloodiest and deadliest war in American history. Troops from the North and the South battled over rights and slavery where over 500,000 people died. The Civil War was a pivotal turning point n history that in more ways than one, defined a nation.

But amidst all this, the soldiers still had time to pose and prune in front of the cameras as evidenced by these photos from the Liljenquist Family Collection which is currently on display at The Library of Congress.
