This group is open to children under eighteen years of age thus no pornography is allowed. This pertains to the group photographic pool, discussions, and member icons (both icon image and text). Also do not bring politics into our group.
Since search engines only “see” text and not photos, it is preferred that the words on the grave markers be entered as text with the photo. However this is NOT REQUIRED.
Photographs of Veterans of the American Civil War will be welcomed by this group: www.flickr.com/groups/veterans_of_the_american_civil_war/
