If you need a Civil War kitsch fix, you're in luck. I had these cards:
* Observation baloons shot down in flames.
* Sharks eating sailors in Mobile Bay.
* Cavalry charging through a mess tent with seated diners.
* A "Train of doom" plunging over a cliff.
* Union troops bayonetting alligators en route to Rebel positions.
For 10-year-olds, they were like a pop history starter kit. Classic Comics were literature in comparison.
