Write It! - Day 26 | Union Soldier and Wife Circa 1860

Day 26 Black History Month Write It! Series *Photo of the Day*

Peter Dupree and Un-named Wife. Dupree enlisted in the Union Army in 1864 and was killed in 1864. Photo most likely taken in Kirkwood, Missori.



We don't know the name of his wife or how she coped with their separation after his enlistment. I want a film that gives this couple a story. A period film about the wives of the black soldiers in the union army.
