Graffiti from the Civil War

This story about Civil War graffiti and where you can see some nearby is mostly here because I think it’s cool and because it’s related to Chris’s recent speech about the history that’s around us every day.

Whether expressing wartime frustrations, transmitting cryptic messages or simply letting the world know, I’m alive, graffiti was one of the ways soldiers told their tales of the Civil War. From teenage privates to generals, their scrawls still live on the walls of historic sites near Fairfax County, Virginia.
