Questions for Photos 1 & 2

1. Locate the shebangs, sinks, and stockade walls in Photo 1. Can you find the tops of any pigeon roosts rising above the walls?

2. What are the prisoners doing in Photo 2? Why would Dorence Atwater's work of labeling each body before burial have been important?

* The images on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high resolution version of Photo 1 & Photo 2, but be aware that each will take about 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
