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.

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.
