|The American Civil War and the Indian Wars are both evident in elements of this Pennsylvania Private's uniform.
He is a member of "K' Company, 1st Regiment of the Pennsylvania National Guard. On his breast he wears a
marksman's medal. An unusual aspect of this photograph is that this soldier chose to wear his caped great coat for
the session - something not often seen in studio portraits. He strikes a casual pose with his bayoneted 45/70
Trapdoor Springfield Rifle.
