Photo's of the cival war

Wives and children followed their husbands


Wives and children sometimes followed their husbands to war, particularly in the early period of the conflict. “(The soldiers) were in the camp, and the women were right there and the kids were right there. They called them camp followers,” Kelly Knauer, editor of 'TIME Civil War: An Illustrated History.' This image, from 1861, may be a family portrait; the soldier was a member of the 31st Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment, attached to the Army of the Potomac in Washington.

Oh how I love these pictures. I had forgotten about the women and children that did follow their loved ones in the war. Such a sad time for our country
