I finally finished my inventory of 59 Civil War soldiers (actually 58 + Harriet Beecher Stowe)… and their cases. I uploaded them to Flickr to share them with other fans of this collecting hobby. Below is a slideshow, also available in full-screen size at Flickr (pretty dramatic).
These were photographed with a Canon EOS Rebel XS on a tripod. They were brightened up in Photoshop, as needed, for the purposes of sharing. You can kind of tell how much brightening by how blown the highlights are in the preserver.
