Do you know about this blog called My Daguerreotype Boyfriend? Because if not, you really should. Basically, it’s a compendium of all the hottest dudes who were around for the early days of photography, or as its author puts it, “WHERE EARLY PHOTOGRAPHY MEETS EXTREME HOTNESS.” It’s got famous dudes like F.

As you can see, it features an 1863 calendar alongside the 2013 one, in case you’d like to pretend you live in the Civil War era (why?!), and the back features several soldiers’ letters to their girlfriends:
The dream of the ’60s is alive!
These union and confederate babes can be yours for the low, low price of $12 plus tax and shipping, or $20 plus tax and shipping for two. Get ’em while they’re hott.
