The cards are back from the printer and they look amazing. For those of you who participated in our Kickstarter Fundraiser. One of our rewards at the $50 and up level was: FACES OF THE INVALID CORPS. CDVs or cartes-de-visite were popular for soldiers to carry and send home – Images for their loved ones. To emulate that, we researched and created 8 “trading cards”, each with an image of an individual soldier from the Invalid Corps or pivotal participant in the Battle of Fort Stevens. It is a great looking set of cards with information and stories about the men – their units, their disability, what they did, and what happened to them after the war. The cards are 2.25 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall, the size of bridge cards and made of 300gsm professional quality card stock with a blue core (smooth finish).
