Were there confederate recruitment posters too?
Like too much of history this seems very one-sided.

No agenda here. Just publishing what I found.

I saw an ad for the 9th Ohio Regiment which was in German.
The last line of the ad reads: “11 febr. t b v ”

What does “t b v” stand for?

I have an OriGINAL printed poster of (CIVIL WAR)
I would like to know how much is it worth because I wish to sell it.
Thank you.

Daniel, you might want to have a second look at the top poster. It distinctly says that the 17th NJ VIR was not mustered fully during the Civil War. And there is some suspicously modern font use in the small type at the bottom, together with a copyright date that looks like 2006….
Also the righthand portrait has an end-date of 1866 under it, so whatever it is, it was not published during the Civil War
