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.

122nd NY Volunteer Regiment - 29th Reunion - 1891

The 29th Reunion of the the 122nd New York Volunteer Regiment held in Syracuse, NY on August 28th 1891. The white hair gentleman sitting front row center is my great, great, great grandfather, Col. Silas Titus, who was the commander of the regiment during the Civil War.

Silas Titus

Cool picture,

I am going through my family history files that were left behind by one of my cousins in Canada and a large part of the history files starts with Silas Titus.

Col. Silas Titus

These are fantastic. I had never seen these before. Thank you so much for sharing. What is your interest in Silas Titus? If you ever come across anything else, please do let me know.


Leo J. Titus Jr., P.E.

Silas Titus

I have found another picture of Silas Titus in the Library of Congress collection.

and have also identified two letters written by Silas to the Courier and Union under the noms de plume Scimetar and Cimeter (i.e. Scimitar).

Also a couple of newspaper articles which mention Silas.
