August 14th, 2012: Civil War Portraits
Posted on: 08/21/2012
Our portrait for today is of a Confederate soldier probably taken in the early part of the war. The weapon he is holding is a conversion musket, meaning it had originally been a flintlock but was converted to percussion sometime before the war.
