Lt. Lorenzo Eagles' Painting Bryan Watson, I am an historian writing a regimental history of the 30th NC Inf. I would love to be able to include Lt. Eagles' painting in my upcoming book to be published by McFarland's Publishing. Who do I need to contact for permission to use the image? And where can I acquire a good resolution image of the painting? Thanks so much. -- TV
Image of J.M. Tynes Hello Brian, I won the Ebay auction of the 9th plate ambrotype and wanted to let you know the image is not WD Tynes, it is of his brother James Madison Tynes (and identified as such under the image). The seller was understandibly confused by the fact that another image of W.D. Tynes was housed in the other half of the case and was at some point removed leaving the identification exposed. James M. Tynes grave is also on this web site and the owner tells me I need to contact you to see if you can remove and repost the image to the correct individual. James Tyens was wounded in the arm at the end of June 1862, and his wound is documented in the photograph. Thanks for your help and your commitment to preserving our heritage! Best regards, Paul Russinoff
William Sharpe Barnes, 1st Lt, CSA Bryan, how wonderful that you were able to add this photo. It's in wonderful condition! Another researcher has confirmed his wife was a Crenshaw and I have corrected the memorial.
