Six cents worth of war news

Harper's Weekly, December 27, 1862
"The Battle of Fredericksburg"

History buffs will rejoice browsing through over 3,000 pages of Civil War content, mostly scans of the lavishly illustrated Harper's Weekly newspapers found at Son of the South. This is gorgeous material definitely worth delving into, though there is some risk that going from this to reading what People thought of what Drew Barrymore wore while catching a flight at Heathrow may cause extreme cultural whiplash for some. Better wear a neckbrace to be safe. (via Jaf Project)
