Miller's is endlessly, ridiculously fascinating. As many times as I think I've looked through it, there's always something astonishing that was missed. This image gets to you. I don't care whether a regiment is Confederate or Union- it's thinking about the gaps in these neat, hopeful 1861 ranks by 1865. No idea why they get to me, maybe it brings home the sheer loss.
Wish we had a relative of 95 pound drummer boy A.K. Clark's here or any of these men. It's always amazing meeting someone we see from these photographs.
