Faces

By the end of July 1, the first day of battle at Gettysburg, of the 16,500 men deployed by the Union Army, there were only 5,500 survivors. The rest were dead, wounded or captured. IMG_2858 

This is a photo of some of the real faces of the men who fought in this battle. (photo taken at Gettysburg visitor center Sept. 2008)
