Listen to Fieldstone Common this week as host Marian Pierre-Louis talks to Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective, about her books The Last Muster and Fashionable Folks Hairstyles 1840-1900.
The Last Muster is a collection of rare nineteenth-century photographic images of the Revolutionary War generation. This extraordinary collection of images assigns faces to an un-illustrated war and tells the stories of our nation’s Founding Fathers and Mothers. The array of seventy images is expansive and includes veterans, loyalists, Native Americans, African Americans, children who witnessed battles and aided soldiers, and women who nursed the wounded and even took up arms themselves.

Maureen investigates photographs the way private eyes investigate cases. She discovers stories behind family pictures by following clues … a hat, the shape of a woman’s sleeve, or a sign in the background. Through her website, PhotoDetective.com, Maureen offers practical, affordable advice on how to save and organize photos. She also writes about the latest photo-related topics, products, and media coverage on her Photo Detective blog.
