Following the Museum's Photography Seminar, Todd Harrington will be plying his craft from 12:30pm to 5:00pm.  This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has ever dreamed of having an authentic wet-plate photograph made.  And where better to have your picture taken than in the garden of the Confederate White House!  Choose from ambrotypes (glass) or ferrotypes (tintypes).  Prices range from $45 to $95, depending on the size and the medium selected.  Photographic appointments are available every half hour starting at 12:30.
