Good afternoon, I am a Vermont Civil War buff, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting places of many soldiers that had ties to Vermont. Levi Higgins is one such soldier. I am asking you for permission to use this photo on the Vermont Civil War site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org) You would receive credit fot hiis.
Thank you for your consideration. Deanna French
