Extremely Rare Pictures Document Everyday Life of the United States in the 1860s

Not easy to take a photograph in the 1860s. The images in this era (and probably few decades late) were mostly portraits of people in the studios. So these pictures of American life in the 1860s are really rare and worth to see.
