Picture of the Week

This photo was taken in 1913 at the 50th anniversary of Gettysburg. This particular tent housed "Tar Heels" of North Carolina. The man in front of the tent and the other on the cot look too young to be veterans, so perhaps they are companions or even reporters from North Carolina. The banner reads: "1861-1865. The Tar Heel State: First at Bethel and Last at Appomattox. God Bless North Carolina." A great photo! (Click to enlarge.)
