A photo album of Civil War Women and Men

Flattr this!

This Civil War era photo album had names with the pictures! Fewer soldier pictures than the previous album, and quite a few missing photos. One of the photograph backs is stamped with “JH Nugent, Abrotype & Photographic Artist, Allen Biock, Opp. C.H., Chillicothe O”…The bell hoop skirts and formal poses…!

I was excited to be able to scan and digitally preserve this- my originals are around 30 megabytes.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
