Awesome Em!! Had to look up Mead and Burnside - Dont' tell my Dad, he used to be a history teacher.

Great choices for caricatures, I hope you do more. Might have to do some myself. The era was ripe for making fun of facial hair :)

Thank you both.

ian - To be honest, I don't know who they are, other than Custer. I just thought it'd be something fun and different.

I love these Euan!!!...Our local PBS has been running Ken Burn's "Civil War" documentary during their pledge drive so all these images are fresh in my head.

Yeah, that's great !
But F... !!!
Since quite a long time now, I have a project with these pictures ! From the Ken Burns Civil War documentary (I bought it last year), and other references...

That's great.

Cheers Jim, Vince, Jean-Marc.

I really should do more historical figures, rather than just celebs.

haha, great!

i've always thought that old photographic portraits all make for good caricatures.

Thanks, Will.

I'm thinking about doing some based on Edward Curtis' photos of Native Americans.
