Although it isn't a cold, snowy day, I enjoyed all of them nonetheless.

After putting together a small compilation of my genealogy I try and imagine what their family story might be.

Thank you for sharing.

You are right...War is War no matter where we are in history...But this war was between each other and not the rest of the world...We where destroying our country and killing our fellow americans!

Thank you for the photos. There are several Civil War "Experts" on TS.com one in particular who was Curator at the Florida Civil War Museum. In saying that I can give you an interesting piece of history about the Civil War pictures. I have seen all of yours before. The reason is that there aren't a lot of pictures, or, negative plates that survived past the 1860's and because of that there weren't a lot of pictures that survived. Someone discovered that the thousands of negative plates were a good size to replace greenhouse windows. Therefore, that's how most of them were lost. This fact came from Mr. Shelby Foote appearing in Ken Burns, Civil War. Very interesting.

Those are great pictures. That was a shooting war, Americans against Americans. The country,
again, seems to be at war with itself, non shooting but very tragic. Very divided country. I'm
a senior and have never remember it so bad.

I'm more of a WW2 weapons buff, but cool pics none the less. The pic with the cannon barrels and balls kind of got to me. I'm one of those guys that anytime I have the opportunity to hold a cannon ball that's 3 inches or more, I always want to throw it and see how far it goes. Yeah, I know I'm a dork! :D
