A nice seated portrait of three NCOs, part of the cavalry detachment at the U.S. Military Academy in the period just a few years after the Civil War.  The men are wearing shell jackets, with the two on the left having sergeant’s chevrons.  The NCO in the center is identified by a recent collector as “Doyle.” He also wears service stripes on the lower sleeves.  The sergeant to the right is wearing sack coat with an armband; I don’t know what this signifies.

Very clear, and in fine condition.

Photographed by C.A. Palmer, Cold Spring, New York.

From the Collection of Mike McAfee.
