Hello! My name is Melissa Winn and I am the photo editor for Civil War Times magazine. We're interested in finding these images of the 7th Illinois and their Henry Rifles for an article we are running in our magazine about the Henry Rifle during the Civil War. Can you tell me where you sourced these images from? I need to get high res JPEGs of them for our magazine and any help you can give me in finding them would be great! You can contact me at or (703) 779-8369
