Read what some of the leading Civil War authorities, collectors and historians have to say about "War Between The States" and its proprietor, Len Rosa
"For several decades I have known Len Rosa and his lovely wife Joanne who had assisted him very supportively in their business. A finer couple has never existed in this business. Sadly, due to medical issues Joanne is no longer able to participate in the business. Joanne had the greatest smile you could ever encounter . . . It is with great pleasure I profess that you will not meet a more honorable and trustworthy person in this business than Len Rosa. He is true and sincere to the bone! You can be most confident when dealing with him. It truly has been a great pleasure to have known him for all these years. Dave Mark (Anne Arundel House - 18th & 19th Century Antiques & Militaria), 60 years of collecting, 45 years as a full-time dealer, author, contributor to numerous books and articles. (War Between The States footnote about Mr. Mark's 2016 book titled, "Maryland Confederate Faces; A Private Collection."

Published in a limited edition, in full color, it is a must have for any serious student or collector of Civil War photography!)

"I started collecting Civil War artifacts around 1978. Among the first few people I met was Len Rosa, proprietor of War Between the States Memorabilia. It did not take me long to realize he was not just another Civil War dealer. He was extremely knowledgeable, fair and honest. Over the years we have bought and sold items on many occasions. I think we both walked away realizing we made a fair deal for each of us. He has a genuine interest in Civil War artifacts besides just profit. He is an historian of note and most of all I still, after 35 years, consider him a good friend." Joe Fulginiti, Owner, Valor Art and Frame, Ltd., Fredericksburg, Va.
"I have know Len Rosa for over 30 years, during which time I have been a customer and occasional supplier for him. I have always found him to be knowledgeable, forthright and honest in all of his dealings, both in the early days when he was living in Gettysburg, and now that he is living in Florida. His catalogs of historical documents and autographs are always loaded with fine, genuine and well described items. While there are plenty of "dealers" these days one should be wary of, Len is not one of those. His offerings are always well described and as stated, and I have found them to be fairly priced. I enjoy my business relationship with Len and look forward to many more years of honest transactions. Barry A. Smith, Greensboro, N.C. Member of the Professional Autograph Dealers Association, and The Manuscript Society."
