The North Carolina in the Civil War Message Board

Looking for photographs of Confederate Veterans

Greetings!. I am looking for photographs of Civil War veteran reunions that took place in North Carolina during the latter part of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. These reunions took place on the local, state, and national level until the last veterans died in the 1950s. I am also looking for images of veterans in their uniforms or with their reunion medals and ribbons.

The photographs will be used in an upcoming book to be published next year by Arcadia Publishers of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. I am seeking copies of these photographs, either photographic reproductions or scans (at 300 dpi), and I am willing to pay for reproduction of these images. I do have the ability to reproduce these images myself.

I am the author of five other books, including a history of the 37th North Carolina Troops, and of the battle of Hanover Court House (to be released in the spring of 2006) along with a number of magazine articles. This will be my second book for Arcadia.

I have already contacted the majority of the libraries and museums in the state, but I welcome suggestions for places to look.

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
