    Civil War Photos

    Since these are photos, I thought posting them here would be best.

    Check out the Civil War photos here.

    Granted, nothing compares to seeing something in person. I think it's pretty cool to see things as they were then, not how time has changed them over the last 150 years.

    Unhappy

    I try to visit Civil War Battlefields whenever I can. Matthew Brady took many battlefield photos but none have struck me more than the photo taken outside a Union Field Hospital, of a pile of mens limbs stacked like cordwood.

    I get the oppurtunity to travel and have been to hundreds of Civil War sites. Been studying it for over 45 years. Those photo's really show the horror of that war.

    Amazing.

    We should strive to preserve what's left of our history and not tear down and replace something just because it's old. Imagine if the old buildings in our home-towns could talk..
