Sketches

I came across these on this site as I was doing some final research on Vicksburg. They're incredibly detailed. They originally appeared in Harper's Weekly on August 1, 1863.






And with this, I need to take a break from my Civil War era genealogy. I'm beginning a new job where my emphasis needs to be more focused on the American Revolution and Colonial history. I admit, my understanding and memory of that era is terribly lacking. I'm excited to begin a more fundamental study of American roots and my family's relationship to that period. You can look forward to much more on that at a later date.

Cheers!
