This is a ferrotype recreating Fr. William Corby's blessing of the Irish Brigade at Gettysburg. 

This image was made at Fresno 2001 with the various Irish Brigade units which were represented there. Yours truly is the dead soldier in front of the rock. 

The camera this was made with is original to the Civil War. It is possible that this camera saw Civil War battlefields. The sepia tone is because this was scanned from a photographic reproduction, not from the original ferrotype.

This is a ferrotype of Kim and me in October of 2001 at Kearney Park in Fresno, California. The slightly crazed look in my eyes is due to the way the medium interprets blue, which is my eye color. Photographs of Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson have a similar appearance because of his blue eyes.

 The process of having this made was fun, as well as interesting. The camera this was made with is original to the Civil War. It is possible that this camera saw Civil War battlefields.
