Battle of Westport Commemoration
TitleBattle of Westport Commemoration
DescriptionExterior view of three individuals holding hands, two men and one woman in historical period costume. None of the people are identified nor is the exact location known. The back of the photo says "Battle of Westport" and it appears that in the photograph a former Confederate soldier and a former Union man are extending the hand of friendship. May have been a ceremony held at one of the anniversaries of the Battle of Westport, perhaps the 50th (1914).
Item TypePhotograph, b/w, 8 in. x 10 in.
NotesFolder which the photograph is in contains numerous essays and items relating to the Battle of Westport. Includes a paper entitled "A Child's Recollection of the Battle of Old Westport" by Mrs. Bridget Dixon Turgeon.
