Indiana Roadtrip

Just back from a visit to collector John Sickles in Indiana. Had a great time swapping stories with him. He's put countless hours into research and writing about Confederate soldiers, and his profiles regularly appear in Military Images magazine. He is graciously sharing some of his images for the book, and I am delighted to feature them. John has focused as of late on Quantrill's Guerillas, and he was able to verify the identities (and provide biographical information) of two of Quantrill's men pictured in a carte de visite belonging to another collector.
