A couple items from the Captains room

Greetings ledheads,
 No new terrain building right now but I have a couple of items that might be of some interest. A page from an 1893 calendar with unit designations and medals from the Union Army of the Civil War.  A New York Times April 4th 1915  supplement for the 50th anniversary of the Civil War

  1. Those are very interesting, Richard. I like that full-color print - amazing how old it is too. Best, Dean

    1. Thanks Rodger...I got a Harpers Weekly that has a drawing of the Cemetery there before it was finished, next time I put something up I'll put that up.
