My dad and I visited this civil war cemetery located in Magnolia, MS sometime last year.

|It seems odd that flowers were placed here since this soldier has been dead for 150 years.|
Perhaps they blew over from another grave.

This is a small sampling of my dad's Civil War collection. The collection has grown since I last took these photos, so I need to go back and document the new pieces.
|My dad actually eats with this spoon. He likes the idea that someone with the initials O.E.F. actually used it 150 years ago.|
|Same with the fork.|

|An actual bullet that struck the handle of the rifle during the Civil War.|
|See the piece of flint in the thingamajig? It somehow created a spark which fired the gun. I'm sure I explained that perfectly. :)|
|Not sure if this is a Civil War era knife, but it's kind of cool.|
Daddy decorated it himself by painting the handle
and adding the tiger eye.
