Good site if you need a quick photo of a general from the CW. Also, if you click on the person's image, it takes you to additional photos, if available, of that same person.

For instance (and who is this man??), this person's pic led to many, many others taken from different times of his life dressed in uniform and not - from what looks the Civil War to old age including what appears to be a few "in the field" photos.
