Tom Liljenquist and his sons, Jason, Brandon, and Christian began collecting Civil War ambrotype and tintype photographs of ordinary soldiers in the mid-1990s. In 2010, the family donated more than 700 photographs of Union and Confederate soldiers to the Library of Congress. "The Last Full Measure: Civil War Photographs from the Liljenquist Family Collection" is a Library of Congress exhibit of 379 of the images.

Tom Liljenquist and two of his sons showed some of their favorites at the exhibit. They were joined by library representatives in talking about the photographic processes, the images, and the exhibit. close
