    He has the "Thousand yard stare".

    If there is anything conveyed by these photos, it's misery. Nearly every one of these people have that hollowed out, haunted look of desperation and abject strife. They don't look so much like soldiers of war as they do prisoners of one.

    well, it was the fashion in the early days of photography not to smile. remember, it took a very long time for a photo image to develop so they had to sit still for a long time! hard to hold a smile. but of course, i'm sure many of these people were not happy. it was a terrible time for our country.

    this guy is beautiful -- looks like a brooding james dean.

    The waistline on the woman's dress looks very high to me - I wonder if she's pregnant here?
