Military History/What era is this uniform?
I am trying to date this photograph. I am not sure who it is, but it is someone in my family that resided in Montgomery County, Virginia. This line of the family have lived there since early 1800's. Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.
By the photograph, I can tell you that it is of a pre-War Between The States uniform worn by many State Guard or State Militia units and military academies students. The face of the individual and haircut further put this photograph at the time frame I mentioned above. I hope this helps and May God Bless-Colonel Robert A. Lynn, Florida Guard
