    Sherrick House at Antietam Interior Photographs/Tour

    Hello, all! Here's a post I've been wanting to make for some time-- as a thank-you for helping out during Park Day, the rangers at Antietam National Park allowed volunteers to tour the Sherrick House, a place not typically open to the public. I took photographs of the interior, and will share...

    Historical Gifts Maybe

    How did Albert Einstein communicate with President Roosevelt about the atomic bomb? How did the Queen of Hawaii protest America's annexation of the Islands? Instead of learning about history from a book, we invite you to learn directly from history through replicas of the historic letters...

    Need help identifying uniform

    Hi! I'm Otis. I'm new here. I came across this forum while trying to research the question I'm about to propose to you. (But now that I've found it, I can't wait to binge read) I have this photo of what appears to be a Union corporal. (There are no markings as to name, place, photographer...

    Ladies, Tresses, Up-Doos And Locks, The Short Story

    One of around a gazillion era illustrations from popular periodicals, The PerfectWoman typically was romanticized- with an awful lot of long Perfect Hair. Hair! We loved our hair, ornamented, plaited, ringletted, ( it's a word.... ), snooded, piled and coifed- not happy with that we made...

    More Civil War participants at a younger age

    Hey folks, I thought about a continuation of the Generals at a younger age thread that @AUG created. I for one like the earlier pictures of generals, because even they were young once and had a live before those four years that brought us together here on CWT. But there are earlier pictures of...

    More unknown generals

    Hey folks, occasionally I´m stumbling over the old and beloved generalsandbrevets; being in a weird stage as one version is apparently updated but hosted in two different designs simultaneously while decaying at the same time; meanwhile the page has been archived in the original form but is...

    Stonewall and Me

    My family and I spent much of yesterday in Lexington, Virginia, checking out the Lee Chapel at Washington and Lee University, as well as other historical places in the pretty little town. I spent sometimes prowling around the cemetery where Stonewall Jackson is buried, and look who I found!

    Sharpsburg/Antietam June 1991

    Pulled out some battlefield pics from Antietam from back in June of 1991 and thought some folks would enjoy seeing them. Hard to believe I took these 26 years ago.
