This is Belle Boyd. She was a Confederate spy who would flirt with Union officers and pass along the information to Confederate Generals. The photo I am copying this from is breathtaking. I love drawing it because I get to just soak up the detail and softness of the photo. There is something so breathtaking about early photos. The early photos seemed to have a very narrow depth of focus. There will usually be a very small amount of ultra crispness quickly merging into unfocused blur. These are amazing and fascinating. Thank you Library for this giant book of Civil War photographs for me to pour through.
