Another great topic for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Being a history junkie, I chose the theme of historical items. Some of these might have a well-known aspect to them, and some may not!

General Lew Wallace’s violin maker’s case. In addition to hand-crafting violins, General Wallace (1827-1905) found time to command a Civil War unit, serve as the governor of the New Mexico Territory and as a minister to Turkey, while writing the novel ‘Ben Hur’ in his spare time!
