This photograph shows two old soldiers. Both were veterans of the Battle of Gettysburg. The picture was taken in 1913, at a reunion held on the battlefield. The man sitting on the rocks is a Rebel soldier, and the man standing is a Union soldier. I find it interesting that there are many people alive today who knew Civil War veterans, and heard about the war first hand from them. The Civil War seems like ages ago, but in generations, it is recent history.
