Civil War Wagon Train
This picture was taken near Savage Station, Virginia, in 1862. I love these old Civil War photographs, but I don' post them much, as they never get many comments. I try to mostly post pictures that get lots of comments, as I think those are the ones people are the most interested in. I have always been fascinated by the Civil War, and I enjoy collecting original material from the war. Generations in my family are pretty spread out. My father is still living. His father was born in 1866. My Father's Grandfather was a Colonel for the Confederacy. My father grew up hearing the stories of the big battles of the war from the old veterans who were there. It is fascinating to me that there are still people alive who heard first hand accounts of the battles, and life in the war.
