Friday Funny is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks us to post something genealogy-related that makes us laugh or smile.
This is probably funny only to me and my sister. For years we’ve laughed at this photo of one of our many summer vacations in which we toured a Civil War battlefield in Virginia. I was my sulking, moody teenager-self that day in Manassas, and Momma was probably tired of waiting for Daddy to line up the happy picture.
What elevated this painful little memory into a candidate for a Friday Funny was finding this next photo in my Aunt Velma’s scrapbook. She was visiting her friend Olive whose family took them to Gettysburg in August 1925.
Civil War Battlefields – a metaphor for teenage angst?
