Celebrate Mona!

Portrait Monthly was a product of the New York Illustrated News, and seemed a fitting gift for "the Civil War fan who has everything." Beginning in June 1863, the Portrait Monthly presented a selection of images of significant Civil War personalities, North and South, and included a brief biography for each. About two hundred individuals eventually made it into the publication, which ceased with the ending of the Civil War. And although the monthly images were selected randomly, and presented in no particular order, the comprehensive INDEX on pages 191 - 192 allows easy reference to every man and woman included:  https://archive.org/details/portraitmonthlyo00newy/page/192  Index of Portrait Monthly.

Thought you might enjoy this more than a dancing bird... Happy Birthday, Mona!

All the best

Ozzy
