Drummer Boy with the United States Colored Infantry. (Civil War)

Samuel Decker was a Civil War veteran who built his own prosthetics after losing his arms in combat.

Matthew Brady, photographer of many of the Civil war photos that we see today. Revolutionized coverage of war with his photographs. The Civil War was really the first war documented in this way.

Civil war soldier's carried about 40 pounds while on the march. Canteen for water, haversack for food and knapsack for sleeping/personal items. Cap box, cartridge box, bayonet and musket or rifle were all for fighting.

Johnny Clem - one of my heroes ♥ He enlisted at the age of 10, served in the 22nd Regiment Michigan Infantry as a drummer boy. In 1863, he was promoted to Sergeant after shooting a Confederate officer at Chickamauga. He is the still considered to be the youngest non-commissioned officer in United States history. I personally think J. Clem is awesome. :)

John Burns. Veteran of the War of 1812. On July 1, 1863 a Civil War battle - Gettysburg - started in his back yard. Grabbed his musket and joined the Union Army in the fight. Wounded three times but survived. Passed away at the age of 79.
