Sutlers Tent near Petersburg

Today we show a picture of a Sutler's Tent during the Civil War. The picture was taken during the siege of Petersburg in 1865. During the war, these Sutlers would follow the troops, and set up shop, selling the soldiers needful things like tobacco, paper, sweets, and so forth, at outrageous prices, of course.
