[Unidentified soldier in Union officer’s uniform at Point Lookout, Tennessee, sitting with cavalry saber in hand and slouch hat resting beside him on a rock]
Historical Note:Photo shows an officer who posed for the Linns, who left Ohio to photograph the Army of the Cumberland. In late 1863, after the battles of Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge, the pair set up a studio near Point Lookout. Here they photographed the western Union armies as they concentrated for an advance on Atlanta. (Source: Matthew R. Gross and Elizabeth T. Lewin, 2010)
