Re: Giving Comfort
Sam, I completely agree with you. I find it particularly striking given the WWII reference, on the 68th anniversary of D-Day. I've seen many photos of wounded soldiers from other wars in that very position, with a hand raised over the eyes. But until now, I have never seen an image from the Civil War like this. It would seem the only thing that changes are the uniforms. The "brothers-in-arms" concern is the same...always. Thank you for sharing this highly emotional photo "zoom." I too believe it has become one of my favorite CW images.
