Civil War Era Gallery

This is a Civil War Gallery that shows the hardships of the Civil War and of corse any other war.  War always takes a toll on a country and the people who fight for it.

This era was a very hard time as men had to weather the elements in a much more primitive way than we do now. The shelter, food and many other accommodations were missing from modern day warfare.

We hope you enjoy our gallery and if you do we ask that you share it with your friends by sharing by clicking the appropriate Social Media button above.

Mountain View Cemetery

Image 10 of 10 The sad aftermath of any war are its sacrifices. They are always shown by the headstones! The Mountain View Cemetery is a large 226-acre cemetery in Oakland, Alameda County, California. It was established in 1863 by a group of East Bay pioneers under the California Rural Cemetery Act of 1859. The association they formed still operates the cemetery today. Mountain View was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect who also designed New York City's Central Park and much of UC Berkeley and Stanford University.
