If I am correct, the building in #15 is in Manassas Virginia and is still standing today. Neat.
And it's surrounded by three Starbucks and a strip club
I've seen a lot of pixels in my day….
Are you one of those people that looks on youtube and says everything is fake?
was being a lil sarcastic
Strange to think how many of these subjects might have died shortly thereafter from a musket ball to the nads or a cannonball to the nads
that is indeed "strange" to think about them all dying from a shot to the nads, lol
3. Place hasn't changed much then.
You mean the South?
Sorry, bad joke cuz I didn't even bother looking at the picture. I'll go ahead and thumbs down myself.
Steam Punk Fever!
Did America Win the Civil War?
Although I doubt the sincerity of your question, truthfully the answer is both yes and no. Mostly yes because the union was saved and the slaves were freed, but when you consider that Americans killed and maimed other Americans by the hundreds of thousands to the extent that an entire generation was largely wiped out and there was an unestimable amount of damage to property then in a way we really lost too.
You should take a few of these and do a "then and now" post of some of the cities that were shown… and maybe some other ones. It would be neat to see what things looked like in their era compared to now.
Thats a good Idea but, there are some people that wish things were still the same as back then….they might take it the wrong way, who'd care? do it any way.
I like lookin at old photos. A lot has changed. Old landscape portraits are even better, casue photography has been around for less than 200 yrs so those go WAY back.
Dear Chive: Photo #2 Looks like the Train Round House in Martinsburg, West Virginia (which they've been trying to keep as a museum for years but it's been a struggle). You find it through Google no problem. Photo's 4 and 5 look much like the Mansion in Shepherd, West Virgina which is now a building that belongs to Shepherd University. Your Welcome.
I have my great grandfather MiPo the Terrible's diaries from the civil war…
YAY! The Merrimack/Monitor And the 54th!! the Only thing i remeber from US history!!
Shit was all fucked up back then….wasn't it?
Is that a mosque in #3?
Smithsonion museum in DC
i wonder if #2 has a flux capacitor?
yes, yes it does !
If ever there was a gallery screaming for captions, mostly on where these were taken.
Chive, make sure there's a few pictures of yourselves around in 150 years time and then await the "like looking at dinosaurs" comments
