        Child’s Uniform, 1915 | A State Divided

        After the war, veterans organizations were formed to help the former soldiers. Some veterans needed medical care and a place to live. So, Kentucky opened a Confederate Veterans Home in Peewee Valley. In 1915, 50 years after the end of the war, there was a soldiers’ reunion at the home. William Griffith, Jr., whose grandfather was the commandant of the home, wore this child-sized Confederate uniform at the reunion to entertain the veterans.

        This resource is part of the A State Divided: Exploring the Civil War Through Images collection.
