This thread is dedicated to all photos and trivia regarding the United States' Civil War (War Between the States/ War of Northern Aggression). Some members seem interested in the time period and I thought we could share our finds. There are many reenactments around the country at various times and as with many sports, the participants and spectators are pretty dedicated folks. If you know of or have visited one of these reenactments, please post about it and if possible show us some pictures!
If you want to start a thread to debate the merits or any aspect of politics pertaining to that era, however, I ask that you start your own thread.
This is a place for fun, trivia and interesting finds!
I don't know what year this picture was taken. I grabbed it off another site where I posted two or three years ago, and Lordy only knows where I found it. But I thought it was a neat example of Veterans we sometimes forget:
Bridgeville, Allegheny County, PA Civil War Veterans.
