Here we have photos on the historical Fort Sumter in South Carolina.
We had traveled to the fort on ferry and were able to capture these
awesome shots.

Fort Sumter in South Carolina is one of the most
famous areas pertaining to the American civil war. On December 20th,
1860, South Carolina delegated a special secession voted unanimously to
secede from the Federal Union. In November, Abraham Lincoln had been
elected President with no support from the southern states. The significance of this election was expressed in South Carolina’s Declaration of the immediate causes secession.

Hospital Militar Central Cirujano Mayor Dr. Cosme Argerich, Buenos Aires, 1936-39.

During the
Videla dictatorship it was used as a clandestine maternity clinic, where
imprisoned mothers were brought and separated from their newborns after
giving birth. Most of these babies were fostered out and raised by
military families, registered as if they were their own. There are
certain hospitals that are known to have been clandestine maternity
centres, and to be born in one of those hospitals raises certain
questions. Not only does the hospital itself carry a murky history, it
is also a place connected to a very tangible phenomenon in today’s
society: with many babies still missing – now adults – people are still
questioning their own or others identities.
