Love solving a good mystery? The Photographic Services Department of the Museum of the Confederacy sure hopes so. The museum has eight photographs in its collection with unidentified subjects and the staff is hoping an enterprising family genealogist might make a connection between the battle sites where the pictures were found and similar family features. Does the little girl in the photo above have your Aunt Harriet’s nose, or maybe your grandfather’s eyes?

The manager of the Photographic Services Department knows there isn’t much of a chance that someone will recognize the person in the photos, but maybe one of our investigators at Crime HQ might solve this mystery for her?
