Center for Civil War Photography
The CCWP is a non-profit organization devoted to one of the most exciting and compelling areas of Civil War scholarship and discovery. New photographic finds from our nation's greatest conflict are still being made on a regular basis. Nearly every Civil War soldier had his photograph taken by one of the more than 5,000 American photographers active at the time, and a select group of documentary photographers took thousands of images on the battlefields and in the army camps, often in 3D.
The Civil War Institute at Manor College
The Civil War Institute at Manor College is a formal organization dedicated to preserving a period of time in our history that to this day has had a profound social, economic and religious impact on our nation. In association with the Delaware Valley Civil War Round Table, the Institute has developed a variety of subjects pertaining to the era of 1861-1865 and adapted each for all age levels.
Through the Institute, a Civil War Certificate Program was developed. In order to be awarded a certificate you must complete eight courses, four of which must be taken from the college's core curriculum. Attendance at all selected courses is expected.
