A large group photo of a company identified as possibly the 16th New York in straw hats – 1862.
Civil War Image – Armed Group Possibly The 16th N.Y. This unmounted stereo image shows a company of men gathered haphazardly for this photograph, holding muskets and nearly all wearing straw hats. The image is identified on the back, “New York 16/??reg. in Straw hats, 1862.
Nearly square in size, just looks old due to rolling up for photograph.
Very good condition.
