Beards In Battle

Beards In Battle

Displayed are a selection of the most spectacular and prominent beards of the US Civil War, stemming from a series of collectible cards that circulated during the period.

The beard once took a central role in the definition of masculinity and society. Now relegated to the dust-bin of history by the crass dictatorship, the restoration of the beard remains the only positive feature of many reactionary ideologies.

Thank you to Mr Phineas X Jones of Chicago for the fine reproduction, blessed with both great artistic skill and an impressive name.
