  • I love studying the civil war. At least back then people had a passion for their country. It's amazing to me how the boys and men wanted to go. They knew they could get hurt or killed. And all this before pain killers. We had two boys in our family history that kept running off to join the war only to be returned home because they were too young. Men with a sense of duty are hard to find these days. Thanks for sharing the pics.

  • Those are amazing pics. I thought the worst were the dead men, but then I saw the last photo, of the "fortunate" soldier that survived the prison camp. Apparently the dead were lucky by comparison, but still...the entire thing is such a tragedy. All wars are.

  • Yes very sad photos, the hanging of the Lincoln assassination conspirators photo is an amazing photo. I didn't even know one existed.

  • Beautiful photos. Sad story. My husband loves anything related to the Civil War - and if he weren't sawing logs on the bed next to me, I'd share them with him. He'd enjoy them.

  • NO they didn't want to go. They had to go or be shot, their farms taken and families starve without the income. Quit glorifying a war. It was like every other war. They had to do it or lose everything they had.
