Sitting inside Shiloh Church looking through a window, across a fence line and into the Shiloh Cemetery. Shiloh, ironically, "Place of Peace." 24,000 casualties. Still too little light coming through.

A fence. A row of standing trees. A single headstone. . There are moments when the tragedy of the Civil War still overwhelms me; brings me to tears. One of those moments came as I stood at Perryville. Here fathers, sons, and brothers died. Not necessarily because they carried hatred in their hearts. But dead because - for a few moments anyway - they were moved more by emotion than by a clear vision of right and wrong. . There were about 7600 casualties at Perryville. I try not to think about the "right side" and concentrate only on the agony of needless death. Those killed outright were the lucky ones. The wounded died slowly as they waited for, prayed for, death to come to stop the pain. Once dead, their grief soaked into the soil. . It seems we still have to feel their agony to understand their lesson.

This Confederate Veteran Colonel's uniform belonged to Munson Monroe Buford. He enlisted in Company K, South Carolina Cavalry when he was just 16-years-old. Buford was instrumental in helping secure military pensions for Confederate veterans and those slaves that went to war with their masters.

A special commission ancestor ring with a rare tintype of an African-American Civil War soldier. Tintypes of African-Americans are rare, not to mention antique photos of African-American soldiers! This went to the perfect home. You can see other ancestor rings on my website in the Silver section. I also have many loose tintypes that can be custom-made into a ring or pendant. And, if you have one you’d like to have made in a piece of jewelry, I can do that as well, in silver or in gold. . . . . #sarahnehamajewelry #sarahnehama #ancestorring #civilwarsoldier #africanamericans #blackhistory #19thcentury #americanhistory #tintype #antiquephoto

johntothedollar. Great group of original, American Civil War soldier images. Each liken

Great group of original, American Civil War soldier images. Each likeness offers incredible insight into Mid-19th-Century military norms and eccentricities. Take for instance the first individual and check out that cravat. He may be killing traitors tomorrow, but today he's killing it style-wise.
