CIVIL WAR ARTIFACTS GROW IN ARCHIVES OF THE MUSEUM OF THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Bird's Eye View of Murfreesboro, Tenn - historic postcard - Gift to the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Gerald Fecht 2009. (click on image to enlarge)
This historic postcard was among the records of longtime resident of North Hollywood, Katherine Shreves. Dated April 20, 1918, the card was given by James E. Moss (one of the famous Civil War "Three Jims" veterans). Moss had fought at Murfreesboro, Tennessee during the War of the Rebellion. He was Katherine's grandfather.
The image, in the Civil War records of The Museum, is important for many reasons, one of which concerns the survival of Civil War and other records from areas outside of the San Fernando Valley that migrated here along with descendants of eastern Americans.
