I just had and idea. Since many are spending more time at home. Why not take a photo of your favorite Civil War treasure or display. Here is mine. Now show us yours. Have a wonderful day.

My favorites are hanging on the wall in my bedroom. One is "The Battle Above The Clouds" by Mort Kunstler,custom framed with museum glass.

I'm trying to send a photo of some of my Confederate Money but can't get the smart phone to cooperate this morning., This tablet's camera also stopped working. it is not on display yet. When I find the right shadowbox or build one it will be on the wall for all to see. I realize it'll all belong to someone else in a few years but in the mean time I'd rather not have it fade out.

Great idea Dave, As there are no shows going on this would be the best way to see collections and learn about pieces we have not before seen. Lets keep it going. Here is my display of bullets, buttons and other small artifacts.

I love how you display the bullets. Where did you get the cabinet? That is amazing. Thanks for the post,
