From the Library of Congress photostream on Flickr are a large number of rare original photographs that were donated by a private collector. Enjoy! :)

I wonder how many of us are related to some of those guys?

Doubt that I'm related to any of them. So far as I know, all of my ancestors fought for the South.

Very interesting..... Some of them were just kids!

Some of the better pictures let you really see the person, adds some weight to those casualty figures........

Anyone else notice that all the photos are reversed? All the letters are backwards?

Interesting to see the variation in expressions from confident to scared...
