Colonel Elmer Ellsworth was the first Union officer to die in the American Civil War. No new biography of his life has been published since 1960--so I am writing one.

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 Tiger! Zouave!
There they are! B'hoys en masse! This is from a reenactment group that represented the NY Fire Zouaves at the 150th First Bull Run. They have a good page on Facebook with a lot more pictures. I used to reenact--it is a wonderful hobby/experience. EE would be proud!
