    Original Photographs From The Civil War






    Original Civil War photographs




    Adjusting the ropes for hanging the Lincoln assassination conspirators at the Washington Arsenal. In this photo I cropped in tight so you can actually see the faces of the conspirators as the ropes are being place around their necks, just moments before their execution.





    An explosion inside of Fort Sumter. It is interesting to note that this was the first time in history that an explosion was captured by a camera.










    interesting site.

    It's trippy to see pictures of people that just died ... 140 years ago.

    The Civil War started 100 years before I was born and every time I see this site it seems like 100 years is just a small step in time. I can never just look at these pics and go I'm stuck here for a while like there are all these windows through which you get to cheat time.

    Just a dirty white guy...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Lincoln Assassination Convicted Conspirators Hanging



    Mary Surratt, 42,(Mary was born to Archibald Jenkins and Elizabeth Anne in southern Maryland)


    the first woman to be hanged by the U.S. Government, is the body hanging at the left. Virtually everyone expected her sentence to be commuted by President Andrew Johnson, but it was not. From the left, after Mary Surratt, hang the bodies of

    Lewis Paine, (
    Lewis Powell, aka Paine, was born in Randolph County, Alabama)


    David Herold, (
    Herold was born in Maryland)


    and George Atzerodt.

    Atzerodt (immigrated from Germany in 1843 when he was 8 years old....)
