      They appear to be real photo postcards (1910-1930). I only have photocopies. In white ink they are both labeled "Lutheran Church at Mt. Tabor, MD." one showing the church from the road in front of the Mt. Tabor cemetery, and the other showing an interior view of the alter and pews. The others are two views of Mt. Tabor schools (one brick and one wood). The sign is visible on the wooden structure and the view of the brick structure is labeled in white ink (in the manner of the church images). These copies are in my Cross photo files, but I cannot (probably a senior moment) remember the source (George Brigham? Clifford? ??).
      When I get back from DC this weekend (Jon Stewart rally), I will get scans made.

      Interesting. Fred Cross, what a gem. What era are the other photos from? Thanks!

        > Looking into, and admittedly just scratching this for the first time,�Burnside's Command�role in the AoP during the MD Campaign.� The general narrative has Burnside reverting to Corps command after the First Corps seperated on the field at Antietam.� If that's the case why in the ORs on the 8th of Oct "Brigadier General Orlando B. Willcox, U. S. Army, supersedes Brigadier General Jacob D. Cox in command of the Ninth Army Corps." and on the 13th Burnside is "assigned to command of the Defenses of Harper's Ferry, W. Va."� Does McClellan quietly revert to using Grand Divisions after the battle or does Burnside continue to serve in an ambiguous role until he takes command of Harper's Ferry?� Will continue to investigate but looking for input.
