Was looking for some photos and saw this on a Civil War Photo Website today. They captioned this photo as Alexander Gardner Richmond 1865 "Group of Negroes "Freedmen" By Canal. Obviously there are blacks in this photo but it clearly looks to me that the two men in the center are white with two young white girls clutching the legs of the man in the middle with the pipe. The man behind them with the cap may be white as well. What is this photo about and what is happening in it? I tried searching on here to see if anybody has discussed this before as it is a strange photo. It has intrigued me.
