*Insert groan here* That’s how many of us feel when it comes time to compile all our photographs and start making the family scrapbook.

Let’s get started!

The photographs within this album dated to the Civil War, and in an effort to identify the individuals based on a few faded captions, I studied them carefully. Who were the women wearing stunning, full-skirted dresses? Who were the children with the solemn faces and neatly curled hair? Might the portraits of bewhiskered men have been a last memento before they left home for battle?
