    Looks like some possible tents behind them. No more information available about this one.

    They appear to wear chasseur style uniforms.

    Medals -- uncommon for American troops in 1861-65; very large epaulets; shallow snare drum on musician left backfround. Cuff stripe (service stripe) on seated man at left.

    French?

    New York went to chasseur uniforms for some of her militia in 1863, beside that there were many chasseur unfirms worn during the Civil War. Without addition information this may end up being one of those mystery units.

    Nice source! I rarely look at stereographs. OP photo is from The New York Historical Society "Civil War Stereographs 1861-1865" album.
