My daughter brought the article below to my attention and I thought it was worth sharing.  It details how a Civil War enthusiast built a website that applies facial recognition technology to Civil War portraits in an attempt to identfy the people in them.  I'm sure it won't be long until it is applied to photographs from other wars as well.
