Cadets in the background take a break in front of their barracks.
In similar views taken in the Civil War period of this view of the Cadet Barracks, you will see the cadets forming up on this street for inspections, etc. This one taken during the war by Photographer Rockwood of New York.
A few cadets take a leisurely brake on the main entrance steps in the background. I believe this building is four sided with a huge quadrangle at its center.
A building that was home to many important military officers in our nations history.
