Today is the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War: the Battle of Fort Sumter.
“Civil War News” was a set of trading cards launched in the US in 1962 by Topps, chewing gum manufacturers. The artist was Norman Saunders. They were later issued in Canada and the UK. I collected them as a kid, though I don’t remember consuming much chewing gum (or was it bubble gum?). They are on Flickr under a Creative Commons license courtesy of Xerones. Read columns downwards for the pictures. There is a different order for the reverse. They will open in a new tab.
Number 21, Painful Death, was especially prized.
