Memorial Day

Every research day feels like a Memorial Day as I sift through Civil War stories for possible inclusion in my next book, Healing Hearts.

The US Library of Congress has an extensive collection of war photographs, well worth browsing. This one is a tintype of a Confederate soldier with sabre and revolver from the Liljenquist family collection.

  1. Neat photo. I remember coming across several old tintypes at my grandfather's house when I was young(er.)

    Wish I knew where they were now. It's so much fun to visit our past this way.
