I'm trying something new in my quest to put faces to names and especially to find faces of ancestors. Please visit 3rdmaheavyartillery.weebly.com/ and meet the 3rd Massachusetts Heavy Artillery, posing for the camera in August 1865, at Ft. Stevens in Washington, DC. Having found two Mayflower-descendant soldiers in the Library of Congress's Civil War Glass Negatives and Related Prints collection and being able to match them to photos later in life, I thought it would be an interesting experiment to see how many of the soldiers in the photos I can identify by finding pictures of them later in life. Some went on to hold office in the Grand Army of the Republic, others held public office, joined fraternal organizations, became professionals, or maybe just had a descendant who put their photo on findagrave. Hopefully no one had his photo on the Post Office wall. I am learning a lot about Civil War uniforms and insignia in the process. Please come join me at this new page!
