I saved the image of the Soldiers arrayed before the tent, and the image of
Twain, opened them in my picture program and converted them to gray
scale. Wow. I have trouble believing a color photo from the Civil War, but the
wonderful sharpness of the B&W images is something else! Try it.

This project represents a very good intention, I think; and I think some
these photos are quite lovely. But I wonder what other scholars think of
this technique?? Modestly soldiers but also including our paragon, MT...
thanks, --Hal B.
