Title: Battle of Westport Commemoration

Description: Exterior 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).
