Geneablogy: An occasional Journal about our experiences exploring our heritage

Monday, March 5, 2001

The Military History Institute at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, has a database of photographs of Civil War vets. I can't link directly to the page with the entry for Ira Poats, but it says that photograph RG98S-CWP147.47 contains a "Full sitting view of Pvt. Ira J. Poats, Co. C, 3rd Regt., Mich. Vol. Inf. Post war view pictured with family." You can get a photocopy of the photograph for free, asking by e-mail, and if the photo is what you want, you can get a photographic print of it for some unspecified fee. The MIGenWeb links list says it costs $10. So I've asked for a photocopy.
