Union Christmas 1864



This is an image of the Union Christmas Dinner 1864 created by Harper's weekly.
Click on the image to enlarge it, so you will enjoy all the details of the print.

It got me thinking of the times back then, in the midst of the Civil War. 145 years ago.
America and the allies are fighting a different kind of war now and troops are out there in dangerous places. Families are waiting for their safe and soon return.
My heart goes out to all of them!
