Album of Memory. [United States:s.n., not after 1859] Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt a Book Home

Bettie Bagwell from the Williamsburg area was the owner of this album. Along with the usual signatures and poetry, this volume includes drawings, cutouts and even hair cuttings braided and tied with ribbons! Many of the entries are from classmates at the Wesleyan Female Seminary in Staunton, Virginia, most from the 1860s. There are also several signatures and a wonderful handwritten poem from Civil War soldiers from the 39thVirginia Infantry from Norfolk and an entry signed “Johnny Reb.”

Adopted by Peter Masi
