Overseer Exemption.JPG Source: Fold3 Confederate Miscellaneous
Presumably an application to be exempted from CS service as a result of the newly enacted law. I have more questions than answers.

mourning with widow w photo.JPG

Conveying her raw pain to us over the span of a century and a half, this mourning photo is evocative, if we allow it, of what ' War ' meant to thousands. Is she Southern? Northern? Does it matter?
