This corset is perfection.

What a beautiful little summer corset this is. I’d love one of my own!

The Library of Congress’s Flickr collection includes 700+ high-res  scans of ambrotype and tintype photos of US Civil War soldiers —  they’re looking for help from the public with identification for many of  the anonymous images: “These fascinating photographs represent the  impact of the war, which involved many young enlisted men and the deaths  of more than 600,000 soldiers. The photos feature details that enhance  their interest, including horses, drums, muskets, rifles, revolvers,  hats and caps, canteens, and a guitar. Among the rarest images are  African Americans in uniform, sailors, a Lincoln campaign button, and  portraits with families, women, and girls and boys.”
