Butterfield was Hooker's Chief of Staff. The General Reynolds pictured here was Joseph J. Reynolds, Thomas' Chief of Staff. William G. LeDuc, another staff officer, would be US Commissioner of Agriculture under President Hayes. Henry W. Perkins (1834-1890), a civil engineer, was a member of Butterfield's staff, later becoming Adjutant General of XX Corps in the Atlanta campaign. Edward H. Perkins, Jr. was the brother of H.W. Perkins and President of the Importers and Traders Bank of New York City.
