1861-1865 collage elements

I've been slowly collecting Civil War artifacts over the last several weeks to work into a related collage project I have in process. I've found some beautiful items and wanted to share them with you. Some of them include an original 1862 Harpers Weekly paper, an original 1863 Rochester Evening Express newspaper, and several Tintype photographs . . . many photos of that time period were printed on actual tin! The final art and collage will be 5 feet high x 4 feet wide. It will be finished by the end of December and I'll share and post more when I can.
