Julia Muzzy of Bangor began a small scrapbook of patriotic images in 1862 and added to it throughout the war.
Muzzy, who married Henry D. Fuller of Corinth, a 2nd lieutenant in Co. B of the 1st Maine Cavalry, after the war, was about 15 years old when she started the book.
Her title page is written in red and blue ink, a further indication of her patriotic feelings. Most of the images pasted on the pages appear to be cut from letterhead -- often used by soldiers. Some are images from magazines or newspapers.
