Description

This officer is wearing both shoulder straps and dress epaulets simultaneously as was done before the war.  The artillery insignia on his slouch hat is hard to make out, but a pencil ID on the reverse says this is a 1st Lieutenant in the 3rd Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery, stationed at Fortress Monroe, Virginia.

The cdv has been trimmed.  There is no photographer information.

An interesting image regarding how the uniform was worn in the period.
