This remarkable album is by 20 year old (1860) Baltimore resident Miss Sallie Fulton, born October 7, 1840 and died December 23, 1892. She apparently was a good patriotic Rebel. It is clear she visited the Confederate Prisoners of War at both Point Lookout and Fort Delaware, where she seemed to be much admired.
This will make a great research project for anyone who enjoys the fun of researching soldiers.
