Two small children looked dressed and ready for the world. From the rosettes on their shoes to the feathers in her hat, these two children are dressed in the height of Civil War era fashion. They both carry a muff and have fur trim on their coat or cloak. Their ears are covered and with their hands in their muffs, they look ready to go out into the world on a cold day. Don’t you just love the striped hose on the little boy?
