Napoleonic and War of 1812 Photos of Veterans Thread

Postby Chuckman » Sat Oct 13, 2012 5:12 pm

This occured to me today when I saw the haunting photo of the Upper Canada militia veterans. In order for them to be photos they will be obviously be old men, but still, it creates some reality and connection to these men that fought and died.

Any photos to add? In uniform would be best, but any are good.
