The year is 1861. This is the haunting face of a Civil War’s Lost Generation. His hollow eyes seem to stare straight through us. The Confederate soldier is Private Edwin Francis Jemison, age 17, of Georgia. Edwin didn’t live to see 18. He was killed at the Battle of Malvern Hill in Virginia, on July 1, 1862. Today, his is one of the best-recognized images of the American Civil War. Now, for the first time, one can see him as he looked in life – in full-color.
