    I'm on a mission to flesh out the Civil War service of my great-grandfather, Col. Edward Dillon (CSA) -- family writing history. From a Xeroxed photo my father had kept of McCulloch's staff, local library got me to a book, which got me to the info that he was on McCulloch's staff at Pea Ridge, which is almost enough to assure me that he's the one I suspect, in the photo. Figuring out these old photos is a challenge, though, especially when you're comparing a face from 1861-2 with same face from 1852 versus 1880s! All that facial hair! Hope I can learn from y'all!

    Hello and welcome from 35 miles north of Gettysburg! It is wonderful that you have an image of your relative. Some of us (like me) are not that fortunate.
