About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Kick up the fire!

Nice pork belly, I'm sure there's some bacon and brisket for dinner. "It seems as though fresh meat and good liquor is the only thing propelling my men, would that all my generals drank like Grant, this evil conflict would be over." - A. Lincoln, circa?

Baby-faced now

I thought the same thing. But I have seen so many recent photos of young soldiers and marines who I though looked like they belonged in middle school, that I can't be surprised anymore.

So baby-faced

I almost thought this was another Boy Scout picture.
