I wonder who they are

I wonder who they are; the ladies with a gentleman in back, the men on the roof, the lady of the house speaking to the visitor, the men watching both the house and coach, the driver of the coach. Twenty five years after the Civil War and they are finally able to rebuild their home. An emotional and wonderful glimpse of life in the "Gay 90s" - not so gay for them.
