Text From Civil War Stamps Sheet-- Part 3

There is a photo of three Confederate soldiers captured at The Battle of Gettysburg.  I found a very interesting story about this photo.  Now we know what their names are.

There were also five quotes which I will list:

ABRAHAM LINCOLN:  "But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate--we can not consecrate--we can not hallow--this ground.  The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our power to add or detract."

CLARA BARTON--  Nurse--  "...what armies and how much war I have seen...what thousands of marching troops, what fields of slain, what prisons, what hospitals, what ruins, what cities in ahes, what hunger and nakedness, what orpanage, what widowhood, what wrongs and what vengeance."

Frankly, My Dear....  --Old Secesh
