SCROLL DOWN PAST THE DESCRIPTION TO SEE ADDITIONAL SAMPLE PAGES FROM THIS ALBUM. Here is one of the more unusual California civil war related items you will see. It is a scrapbook kept from 1898 to 1900 of newspaper articles from Fresno and SF newspapers with a focus on the Civil War and local Politics. The really neat thing in it is about 6 to 8 pages of some 1898 articles on the Civil War and a few on Confederate veterans. Holding their reunion in Fresno followed by two real photographs showing a group of Confederate veterans with inscriptions of time and place.
Several pages later there is a large real photograph of men and women at a cemetery for some kind of dedication / event. There are a few other real photographs in the book later on. 2 show an identified church by name in Fresno and are dated 1899. 2 other albumen photographs show a group of men in some sort of open office setting. Otherwise everything else in the ablum is newspaper articles.
Most of it focuses on politics and local events. Looks like maybe 1 or 2 things removed. A few loose articles placed in pages. Pages and articles are chipping creating scrap paper droppings when handled as is typical.
