Civil War Saturday: Sharpshooter

Tim’s unable to do a full write up this week (I think it might be weather-related power issues) but here’s a photo I happened across:

Capt. Schwartz (The Sharpshooter).  39th N. Y. Vol.

  1. Sorry for the lack of posting, but my power issues were indeed weather related and expensive. Such is life in Maine. Selah.

    I’ll have a posting tagging to this one with some comments about the image Murdoc posted of Capt. Schwartz, in particular just WHY an officer might be wearing an enlisted sailor’s frock and neckerchief.

    Stay tuned…
