The Oldest Photos Captured From Each State
31. New Mexico
The photograph shows Fort Marcy, in 1868. It was built when there was a dispute between the United States and the Republic of Mexico over the southern border of Texas. Fortunately, the fight didn’t involve deaths.
Fort Marcy was used during the American Civil War and Mexican–American War, but it was demolished during the 1890s.
32. New York
This photograph of the Hudson River, which flows through eastern New York, was taken by William England. Later, the picture was colorized.
33. North Carolina
Captain William F. McRorie was photographed in 1861 holding his sword. During the Civil War, the popularity of guns increased because they can be used from distance.
However, swords and knives were still used, especially in close combat.
