Confederate works in front of Atlanta, GA.  The Confederate fort at the end of Marietta Street was protected by abatis, spiked sticks that worked like barded wire to hinder an onruch of enemy troops or cavalry.  About 1864.  Note the unusual skyline.  Early photographic emulsions were overly sensitive to blue light and therefore  recorded the sky as an unnatural blank.  To achieve natural effects, photographers sometimes made a print like this one from two negatives:  one of the subject and another of the clouds.
