Civil War through WWI haul


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I recently got to pick through a house and the former occupant was a military paper collector. I made two trips, one in the car and one in the truck and I still had to leave things behind. Honestly, most of it is beyond my area of interest or knowledge and plan to pass nearly all of it on to new homes. In the meantime I thought I would start posting the images here in hopes that others will enjoy them and perhaps help with identifying some of them. 

MANY pics to follow. 

Thanks 🙂

-Ryan

And there are still hundreds more, framed and unframed, all sizes. Cabinet cards, CDV's, loose photos, paperwork, albums, letters, etc. Plus thousands of non-military photos as well...

Wowza! Any early Marines?

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after. Let me know if you have something you want to part with.

That is a nice image dating from 1912-1922. WWI period. Thanks!
