We all know of Mr. Lincoln's intelligence, his common sense, and his eloquence. What I'm going to attempt is to post a quote from him each day. This will be the first : This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Expired Image Removed Letter...

Frequently I cross paths with Civil War era quilts, and wish we had a central location for them; this thread should serve the purpose. I encourage and welcome everyone's contribution to the collection. Thank you.

Stained Glass windows are in most older churches usually of religious stories from the bible but sometimes they are used as memorials in churches to a person or cause. Many churches after our civil war had stained glass windows put in as memorials to a son, to fallen soldiers, to the war, and...

Ami's SOA Wives And Husbands, Soldiers And Widows Of The South | The Ladies Tea - War from a Feminine Perspective
Found some thought provoking articles on Southern wives and husbands, soldiers and widows. There's a perspective out there, that so many Southern men perished in the war, women remained war widows and young girls coming of age during and just after the war had a difficult time, realizing the...

Brass Napoleon Award Amazing Grace, Remembered; A Count Of Honor, Please, Our Lost Nurses | Medical Care
This, because what a surviving nurse said years later of those lost, sticks in my head. Posted her comment before, but it belongs amongst her peers. How flowers and vines take over the stones, and butterflies play where sorrow once walked from a grave. Hoping this may grow into something with...

This year has been a momentous one for travel to Civil War sites; indeed I've spent at least a month (just over four weeks total) on three separate vacations covering literally at least a couple of thousand miles through many Southern states, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania, like at Gettysburg above...

Edit: I'll continually go back and add a few more photos to these posts here on the first page, either images that were buried in later pages of this thread or that I have since found elsewhere. Of course we can't leave out John Bell Hood. Most are aware of Hood's time as a division commander...

Some of the dogs who accompanied soldiers in the Civil War are well-remembered today, thanks, in part, to their portraits. Dog Jack of the 102nd Pennsylvania Volunteers, who was the subject of several CDVs, for instance, or General Rufus Ingalls’s handsome Dalmatian, who appears in a series of...

Made it a point to get this photograph because this tree had a run in with some lightning. This one is the honey locust on Cemetery Hill which is in between the Lincoln Memorial and the Soldier's Monument (closer to the Lincoln Memorial)

As it is Women's History Month I thought I might share some more perhaps little known information on the wife of Ulysses S. Grant. While Grant's star continues to shine brightly, or not, Julia has her own story to tell. It may be dimmed by Grant's, but her star shone none the less brightly in...

Fantastic thread Nominated by @DBF! I really enjoyed everyone's answers to this question when I first asked it earlier this year and was wondering what everyone is working on now. I must admit, between some family stuff and work, I haven't made any progress on my genealogy research. :frown...

Nominated by: @DBF Started by: @lelliott19 Laura's research was extensive and it’s a fascinating topic. Let’s face it - most everyone on the site during their lifetime will have some type of anesthesia administered. It’s interesting to see the “hits and misses” that went before us. Use...
