Caption: REBECCA, AUGUSTA and ROSA, Emancipated Slaves, from New Orleans. Photographed by Kimball, 477 Broadway, NY. 1863. These three girls were part of a group of eight former slaves from New Orleans (five children and three adults) sent to the North on a publicity tour to (1) raise money for schools that served former slaves run by abolitionist groups after the Union Army occupied much of Louisiana in 1863, and (2) to arouse the sympathy of countrymen who were preoccupied by war, and more often than not ambivalent on the issue of African-American slavery. One of the major reasons for the great success of this campaign was that four of the children were of mixed race.....but looked white. So much so that the Harper's Weekly ran a story on them titled" "Emancipated Slaves: White and Colored." These portraits were produced in the format of cartes de visite (CDVs), albumen prints the size of a calling card, and sold for 25 cents each.

Rebecca, Augusta, and Rosa were freed from slavery in 1863. Lighter skinned slave children of mixed race heritage were used as part of a fundraising campaign to help struggling African American schools in 1860s New Orleans. Campaign organizers believed the lighter complexioned children would help boost donations to their cause.

Anna Maria Reeves Jarvis (September 30, 1832 May 9, 1905) was born in Culpeper, Virginia. Jarvis worked around what is now West Virginia to promote worker health and safety concerns. During the American Civil War she organized women to tend to the needs of the wounded of both sides. After the war she became active in the promotion of Mothers Day, a holiday at that time involved with the causes of pacifism and social activism.

"[C]harlatans, bandits, pirates, racketeers, kidnappers & termites": the founder of Mother's Day was unhappy with the commercialisation of her holiday. Anna Jarvis founded Mother's Day in 1914 to commemorate her mother, who had previously established the Mother's Friendship Day to promote peace during the American Civil War. Jarvis apparently hated what became of Mother's Day, especially buying over-priced cards. No Hallmark fan was she! #sociology
"The only thing better than the sweet and sentimental Mother's Day is its radical feminist history steeped in religious values"

A pinner writes: The routines of camp life of the 31st Penn. Infantry (later, 82d Penn. Infantry) at Queen's farm, vicinity of Fort Slocum, Washington, D.C., during the Civil War in 1861." I haven't seen this one before. The other one where she is looking into the camera is well known though. Researchers have studied the knitted sweater and head cover she is wearing. And they have speculated about the rolled up garment around her waist - is it a petticoat or apron? Amazing shot.

Sunken Road, Stone Wall and Innis House Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania--this is America's battleground, where the Civil War roared to its bloody climax. No place more vividly reflects the War's tragic cost in all its forms. A town bombarded and looted. Farms large and small ruined. Refugees by the thousands forced into the countryside. More than 85,000 men wounded; 15,000 killed--most in graves unknown.
