Far and above my favorite parasol manufacturer of the mid-nineteenth century. As ridiculous as it sounds, I once held one of their pieces (This one is in my collection, the one I am referring to however belongs to a good friend of mine) and was nearly brought to tears by it. At their best, their pieces were wrought as fine and as much like jewelry for the sun as you could get. #antiqueparasol #parasol #1860s #verdier #ombrelle #antiquefashion #historical fashion
Day 24 of the #augustphotochallenge : my research. This is some of the research that I really need to get back to soon ... I am fortunate to have several letters that were written to my 3x great-grandmother, Dorothy Gould Lillie, and to other family members. They're from cousins mostly, but there's also one from Dorothy's father, Reuben Gould, written in 1853. The letters mention many other relatives and friends, the state of the Union, prices of dry goods, work life, births and deaths, illnesses, and so on. My goal is to transcribe all the letters, find out who all the people are that are mentioned, and work out a story of their lives. No small task, to be sure! . . #genealogyphotoaday #myresearch #letters #civilwarera #vintage #penandink #ancestry #mymatrilinealline #gouldfamily #lilliefamily #chaffeefamily #1850s #1860s #19thcentury #familyhistory #mystory #gpad_feature #CT

A sneak peak of our McMahon’s Point project... love this space and the sun filled inside/out area of this 1860’s home. Do you like our old fashion dressers? They both house kitchen storage plus a wine fridge! @koedamdesign 📷 @artfulshotsds @destrorenovations @wk_quantumquartz @duluxaus @leforge_furniture_sydney @mieleaustralia @wortleygroup @winningappliances @zipwater_ @frankeaus . . . #koedamdesign #designer #interiordesign #madetomeasure #miele #bestoke #1860s #residential #home #dressers #vintec #winefridge #blume #destrorenovations #tradional #heritage #greenery #butlerssink #chickenwire #display #greenglass

Braxton Bragg (1817-1876) 🇺🇸 Teil lV Nach der Entlassung von seinem Kommando wurde Bragg zum Militärberater des konföderierten Präsidenten Jefferson Davis ernannt. In dieser Eigenschaft überarbeitete Bragg den Einberufungsprozess der Konföderation und das System der Kriegsgefangenen. Er koordinierte auch die Verteidigung der Hauptstadt Richmond. Im Oktober 1864 übernahm Bragg das Kommando über die Küstenverteidigung von Wilmington und North Carolina - eine der letzten Anlaufstellen für konföderierte Blockadeläufer - und überwachte später das gesamte Department of North Carolina und Southern Virginia. Im November 1864 befehligte er die Verteidigung von Augusta, Savannah und Columbia während des Marsches von General William T. Sherman zum Meer. Bragg kehrte Anfang 1865 nach Wilmington zurück und leitete die Zweite Schlacht von Fort Fisher, konnte jedoch nicht verhindern, dass der Hafen unter die Kontrolle der Union geriet. Bragg beendete den Krieg mit einer kurzen Rückkehr zur Tennessee-Armee im März 1865, als er während der Schlacht von Bentonville als Korps-Kommandeur diente. Er wurde im Mai 1865 von den Streitkräften der Union gefangen genommen und kurz darauf auf Bewährung entlassen. #braxtonbragg #usarmy #usacivilwar #conferderat #dixieflag #ushistory #civilwar #unitedstatesarmy #americanhistory #americancivilwar #uscivilwar #ussoldiers #biography #unitedstate #🇺🇸#confederatestatesofamerica #confederatestates #westpoint #history #thesouthshallriseagain #military #amerikanischerbürgerkrieg #unitedstatesarmy #civilwarhistory #colorizedhistory #northcarolina #southernstates #1860s #battleoffortfisher #rebelflag #thesouth
Going 1860’s for the #VintageSummerChallenge2019 today! The theme is 60s, 70s, 80s, but you know I don’t ever get that modern! . . My most recent 1860s dress, worn for an event back in February. I got ZERO good pictures of it. I’ll just have to wear it again some time! . . #day24vintagesummer2019 @faces_and_style #1860s #1860sfashion #historicalsewing #sewing #historicalfashion

This wall of Red Butte Sandstone was built by Fort Douglas Soldiers in the 1860s. It served as the backstop of the Fort's Rifle Range, located just south of the Fort Douglas Cemetery. It was eventually lost to history and buried, then uncovered with new construction in what is now the U of U Reaseach Park. It was going to be lost again through demolition until it was saved by SLC resident Lorna Matheson. Thanks Lorna! 🧱🧱🧱 #SLChistory #SLC #SaltLakeCity #UtahHistory #fortdouglas #uofu #researchpark #historicplaces #historicwall #historyhero #armyhistory #militaryhistoy #utahmilitary #utahmilitaryhistory #1860s
