Civil War Veterans
We salute veterans of the American Civil War and other wars in which members of the U.S. armed forces fought, as well as the nurses who provided vital support, with these portraits from the Liljenquist Family Collection. The photographs highlight the ways in which the veterans’ lives were marked by their service, the ongoing bonds of the veterans, and how service was sometimes a multi-generational experience.
