Civil War Soldiers of Pittsford

When I first began this project in May 2008, I took photos of the headstones of 85 men whom I chose solely based on the fact that they were soldiers of the Civil War.  Now, several years later, the lives these men led have been illuminated to me and tell me so much more than a headstone ever could.  Now I know these men as people.  Over one hundred years later, I’ve read of their triumphs and their heartbreaks.   The names of their wives and children slip from my tongue as easily as those of my own family.  It is very important to me that these hometown heroes be illuminated.
