Pressestimmen"The greatest consolation I have during the last two weeks of continual fighting, marching, and hardship is that lovely picture of you and the dear children. . . . I am looking at it about 5 times an hour and I fear that sometimes I am talking to it. As soon as Vicksburg falls, I will come home and stay at least one month."--letter from Colonel Marcus M. Spiegel to his wife, 23 May 1863--Marcus M. Spiegel
