Federal Government Shutdown Benefits Art Museum
Alexander Gardner's photograph of President Abraham Lincoln at the Army of the Potomac headquarters near Antietam, Maryland, October 4, 1862, is seen as part of an exhibition of more than 200 original Civil War era photographs organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Hundreds of tourists who because of the shutdown could not visit the popular Fort Sumter National Monument, where the first battle of the Civil War took place 152 years ago, have instead been flocking to see a photo exhibit at the Gibbes Museum of Art in nearby Charleston, South Carolina.
