My plan for "caption this!" is to do one a week from November through the end of February. But we need photos!

Personally, I think living history photos make the best ones. Usually a candid photo of the character or reenactor will lend itself to be captioned well.

Do not submit era photos. I don't think it is appropriate to make fun of long deceased people, even if they were up to shenanigans....

General Joseph E. Johnston arrived back at Richmond on April 12, 1861 from Manassas and was put in command of the various Confederate forces around Richmond and the Peninsula. What was his preferred name for this amalgamated army?
