This plate belonged to my g-g-grandfather, Josiah Barnum Corban, and was carried in his pack as he served in the Civil War in 1864. It seemed fitting to post this in among my reenactment photos.
I own copies of letters Josiah sent to his family while he was away at war. Documentation of his service: Corban, Josiah Barnum Diary, Jan-Nov 1864 (2nd Conn. Art., Co. G), typescript, 48 leaves.
January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.
