10:38 @quirkyslayer It's been so slow...drives me crazy... #

10:40 @shawnahooke Me and hubby used to do CW reenacting, so I was particularly curious. And we both had lots of family in it... #

10:43 Time to write fluff...want it to be a giftfic for KWT, but it counts if I get it finished early enough...Pink is being lazy this morning... #

10:52 @quirkyslayer same thing here...I hope they get it fixed before I finish the fic I'm writing right now... #

Do you still have connections with CW people? I've been [lazily] looking for info on my CW artist "uncles" who are actually my great-grandmother's uncles and I need someone with CW offbeat book knowledge.

Not so much contact with them, but I have lots of CW knowledge and books and internet connections. Might be able to help you or point you to some leads if you can get me some particulars...

Sure. The people I'm trying to find out more about are Alfred and William Waud. They were English sketch artists, sent here by the London Times to provide pictorial coverage of the CW. Alfred traveled with the Army of the Potomac, William marched to the sea with Tecumseh Sherman. Alfred was at the battle of Gettysburg, in fact if you've seen the photograph, by Mathew Brady, I believe, of the battlefield artist sitting on some big rocks, sketchpad on his knee, that's him. Alfred either stayed in the US after the war ended or went home and came back--he drew at least one picture of the Chicago fire.
