Southern Pride (What We See - What We Imagine) #8


This man jumped right out the Civil War. Everything about him screams I am a Confederate. When I found the tintype photo bearing his image, I couldn't help but imagine him in vibrant wave of color. Those somber, hard eyes staring out at the future in angry defiance. I imagined a whole life in the blink of those eyes. Sons lost in the war, Yanks on the streets, the day those eyes filled with tears when word of Lee's Surrender came. 

The words of an old Alan Parsons song fill my head "Some other place, somewhere, some other time".
