Velentines Day

You are viewing an incredible illustration of Valentines Day from an original 1864 Civil War Newspaper.  The leaf shows various traditions of the Valentines Celebration in the Civil War. An angelic figure is shown delivering a bag of valentines from soldiers at war to the women they love back home. At the bottom, men can be seen writing to their sweethearts. The center image shows women and children preparing valentine cards for their husbands and fathers, who are off at war.
