    The only photos taken of American Revolutionary War veterans

    No info on the lens, however---
    https://www.photographytalk.com/phot...y-war-veterans

    Enjoy!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    It is fascinating stuff. Have to wonder if some of the veterans had photos made earlier, say in the 1840s or 1850s?

    I can fill in a little on the lens John. It was a petzval.

    NPR had a story several years ago about 2 ladies who still received checks as wives of veterans of civil war soldiers. I am fascinated by those kinds of spans. They literally had to be in their 20's and married men in their 80's to still be living. One of them just died recently. Turns out the depression caused that. Destitute women taken in by ancient men who then married them and lived out a 140 year span from the civil war.
