Joe Quattlebaum’s War

Guest blogpost: Ron Coddington | Publisher of Military Images Magazine

JOE QUATTLEBAUM’S WAR.—The journey of Joseph Elijah Quattlebaum, pictured here, of the 13th South Carolina Infantry and his family during the Civil War is representative of the multitude of resilient subsistence farmers who eked out a living on their own merits, without slaves, on modest patches of land across the South. His story, based on his personal letters, is part of the recently released spring issue of Military Images.
