Rowan Rifles hosting Civil War author, imagery expert Bob Zeller on Wednesday

Rowan Rifles Camp 405 Sons of Confederate Veterans is hosting Bob Zeller, the president and co-founder of The Center for Civil War Photography, on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 6:30 p.m., in the Stanback Room at the Rowan Public Library. The event is free to the public.
Zeller is one of the country’s leading authorities on the imagery of the Civil War. He is the author of several ground-breaking books in the field, including “The Blue and Gray in Black and White: A History of Civil War Photography” (Praeger, 2005), the first narrative history about the war’s photographers, what they did and why they did it. Zeller pioneered the modern presentation of stereoscopic Civil War photography with “The Civil War in Depth” (Chronicle Books, 1997), the first 3-D photo history of the war, and “The Civil War in Depth Volume II” (Chronicle Books, 2000).
A native of Washington, D.C. Bob grew up in Hyattsville, Md. A writer, journalist and historian, he spent 25 years in newspaper journalism, specializing in investigative reporting and later working as a motorsports beat writer covering NASCAR. Bob has published a dozen books or trade publications, including his latest, “Lincoln in 3-D” (Chronicle Books, 2010), co-authored with John J. Richter.
He has been presenting 3-D slide show lectures of original Civil War photographs since 1997. Images from his Civil War photography collection were featured at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery exhibition on Mathew Brady in 1997-98, as well as his own one-man show at the Southeast Museum of Photography in 1995.
