150 years ago today–an iconic image

From John Hennessy:

Today is the 150th anniversary of the iconic photo taken by Timothy O’Sullivan of a group of escaped slaves crossing the Rappahannock at Tinpot Ford near modern Remington. To honor the event, a group of friends including Bud Hall and Craig Swain visited the site this morning. Craig has written about the visit and the photo here.
