A photo of some members of the famous Second Wisconsin Infantry. I've never seen the tin cup worn in that manner before. Also, note the dark blue pants instead of the sky blue ones worn by the rest of the brigade ( and the rest of the army pretty much ). IIRC, the Second were originally issued 1816 Harper's Ferry muskets converted to percussion, then they were given 1854 Austrian Lorentz muskets. Date of this photo is around 1861.
