Via Reddit’s /r/colorizedhistory Credit where it’s due!

“Including the Race Mixing protest one I’ve colorized 5 of the photos myself (it’s mah job, if you’re interested having one colorized by me, contact me via my website or PM me on reddit!)

1 Nashville Capitol 1864 Photograph of the War in the West. These photographs are of Hood before Nashville. Continuing his policy of the offensive at any cost, Gen. John B. Hood brought his reduced army before the defenses of Nashville, where it was overthrown by Gen. George H. Thomas on December 15-16, in the most complete victory of the war. If the date borne on this photograph is correct, it was taken in the course of the battle.
