Library of Congress civil War Photos http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/cwphtml/cwphome.html
There are no known restrictions on these photographs. However, approximately fifty of the portraits of soldiers (mostly enlisted men) are copies of photographs that the Library of Congress borrowed during the 1950s and early 1960s. (The catalog records for these images contain a note field that begins "Copy photo made by LC . . . ."). After copying, the original photographs were returned to their owners but the Library did not retain a record of the owner's names and addresses. The Library is not aware of any restrictions on these images, but is anxious to hear from individuals or institutions that own the original photographs or who know of their history.

When the Lakeview House was first built in 1685, this area was essentially wilderness. When the first settlers arrived the land was forests, with Indian trails a few yards wide, so walking was the only means of transportation, or perhaps a small cart or sleigh. The Dutch owned the land, but wanted to encourage settlement, so Governer Van Twiller, of New Amsterdam (now called New York) invited New England settlers into dutch held lands. In 1665 was a large migration from New Hampshire to the Rairitan River, from New Haven to Newark, and from Newburg, Mass. to the Raritan. The English took over in 1675, and under the English Proprietors, it became important to connect travel between New York and Philadelphia. A road was constructed from Amboy to Bordentown by Gawen Lawrie in 1694.
