Civil War Soldiers in the East Room

When the Civil War began, several soldiers slept in the East Room and White House hallways until proper housing could be found in the nation's capital. In this image Union soldiers relax in the East Room, their baggage in a pile on the right. Five soldiers are playing cards in the center of the illustration.
