"Original Civil War Pictures"
These are really interesting photos from the Civil War.
Truly fortunate that so many of these have survived. Probably a million wet plate photos were made during the civil war on glass plate. Popular during the war, they lost their appeal afterwards and so many were sold for the glass. Many used in green houses. Over the years the sun caused the images to disappear.
pretty amazing considering they were taken up to 150 years ago: A
compendium of photos from the Civil War era. If you double click on the
picture it will enlarge and the picture caption will show. Also, put
your cursor on the picture and the title appears in a line at the bottom
of the page. There is a
word “Back or Return to Home” and if you click those words it will bring
you back to the first picture again, not advisable. Advice is to
click the back button on your cursor or
click the green arrow on the top left of your screen and then you won’t
lose your position within the pictures.
Scotland Of Old Maps
The Scotland of Old map, also known as the Bartholomew Clan Map of Scotland, features ‘The Lands’, ‘The Arms’, ‘The Crests’. The central map delineates the clan territories and is framed by the serried array of a hundred and seventy heraldic shields along with their crests and mottoes. The whole piece was designed by the late who painted it as a single artwork. Follow the link below to view the map:-
This is the old map that shows our Wardlaw coat-of-arms at the bottom right. The pure arms of three mascles on a field of blue.
