One thing I've noticed is all

One thing I've noticed is all the pictures you have of dead soldiers are confederates...Very sad to see boys hardly older than 18 or 20 having their lives cut off at such a young age....

Another thing I've noticed is that all the union soldiers had uniforms...The confederates were poorly...even raggedly dressed...
