A postcard featuring Colonel J. A. Pattee and his company of Old Soldier Fiddlers visiting the Old Confederate Soldier's home at Richmond, Virginia on February 9, 1912.
The back states that Vincent Amusement Company presents Col J. A. Pattee and his company of old soldier fiddlers; None of whom can read music, two boys in blue, two sons of Dixie, playing the old time tunes. Vaudeville's latest novelty act. From 1402 Broadway New York.
The card shows the fiddlers and the aged confederate veterans who were residents of the Old Folks Home.
