    Thanks to all who answered my question on the picture I enclosed in a previous message.
    Mike Serpa, you had good information from copyright.cornell.edu. Sounds like good logical information on copyright "stuff." Trouble is I still don't know if I should use the picture as I desire. If I use someone's picture in my story and they dislike it, you fellows might have to help get me out of jail.

    To those who asked where did I find this picture. I believe it was on this Gettysburg forum months ago. I think it is a great picture, taken in 1890---so it said. It is a great picture of how the Trostle farm buildings and farm looked at that time of history.

    Tony if the photograph is really from 1890, it is in the public domain. It can be used and even published. That being said, you should always do your do diligence as far as sources. I personally have never seen the photograph before, and I'm writing a book on Gettysburg photographs. Tipton maybe? but maybe Mumper. I agree it is a very interesting photograph.

    Oh one more thing I forgot to add, even though photos are in the public domain, some collectors (who own the photo) or sites have restrictions on copying their photographs. Some require a licensing fee in order to publish if you got the copy from their collection. Most just ask you to give credit, like the library of congress, and now the NYPL, National Archives ect.
