Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Confederate Veterans Reunion Photograph unknown location

I purchased this large ( 20" x 24" ) original framed hand tinted photograph from the estate of one of my university professors last week.  The photograph is unidentified. I think that if he had known the location of the reunion, he would have written it on the back.  He lived in Alabama and Mississippi but the photograph could be from anywhere in the South. 

The men are posed with the flag behind a rather large stump.

I am in hope that someone might recognize the group or someone in the group so I can record the location of the reunion.  

Some of the faces are fading away, but  many are still recognizable.

  1. that is a very old picture
    wonder if you removed the glass the picture would be clearer for someone to recolonize the men or place
