Some of you may have already noticed the new, fledging section to BoothieBarn.com: Picture Galleries! At the top of the page near the “About” tab is the link to this new feature:
Clicking on the link will take you to the new Picture Galleries part of the website:
Here you will find different galleries of images relating to the Lincoln assassination field. I’m hoping this section will become a great resource for those looking for images about the assassination. Currently, I only have four galleries up and running but I will be adding more as time goes on. After you click a specific person, place or thing, you will be taken to its corresponding gallery:
Clicking on a specific picture will open up a bigger version of the image, give you a short description of it, and source of the image if available.
As with many things in life, the Picture Galleries are works in progress. My hope is for this to be a community project. When I add a new gallery I will make a post announcing it. My hope is that any of you with pictures of the same subject matter will contribute your personal pictures as well. That way, together, we can create the best archive of Lincoln assassination imagery available.
So, I have four galleries up regarding Edman Spangler, Michael O’Laughlen, the Pine Thicket where Booth and Herold hid, and Booth’s Derringer. If you have any more pictures relating to these subjects feel free to email them in .jpg format to me at boothiebarn (at) gmail (dot) com. With any picture you send make sure to include a short description of it and its source.*
I’m excited about this new section to BoothieBarn and I hope it proves enjoyable and educational to you, too.
