Does anybody know any information about the setting of this photo? This was passed down to me from a family member who doesn’t know the identity of the man in the photo, but I believe it could be one of my ancestors. Is there any information in the photo that signifies when or where it was taken?




I assume that the outfit the man is wearing is likely military garb, but apart from that I wasn’t sure how to identify it. I know it’s almost definitely from the 19th century, but I didn’t know if it was from a period of wartime. My first thought was that it was a union uniform from the Civil War, but I would also be interested in figuring out where the regiment that wore that uniform was from. Any tips on how to identify military garb from the 19th century US would be greatly appreciated.

Also, are there any tips on how to store this photo and keep it safe?
