    Have always been interested in the expressions on both these ex classmates faces, they are not smiling but then again they don't look too upset.

    James Barroll Washington attended West Point and his name can be found there in the 1860 census along with 20 year old George Armstrong Custer, later General George Custer of the Battle of Little Big Horn . The two were friends at West Point, but were on opposite sides during the Civil War. As Lieutenant Washington, James was an aide on General Johnston's staff, but was captured by Union forces in 1862 when carrying dispatches. Here he met Captain George Custer and the occasion was recorded in two well known photographs by the famous photographer, Matthew Brady. One photograph used a posed contraband ex-slave to illustrate the cause of the war.

    After the Civil War, James had an apparently quiet career as an accountant with the Boston and Ohio Railroad Company. In the 1870 census, James and Jane are recorded in Baltimore with three children, William Lanier Washington (30 Mar 1865-11 Sep 1933), Benjamin, and Lewis.

    Just felt too random and too brown/faded for me. Glad you liked it though.

    The pictures on there are freeware. I painted them, some are requests, but I certainly didn't snap them. Knock yourself out man.

    There's even an option to download everything as a zip. :D
