National Archives Photographs between 1860-1869 contains this from 1861, listed " Unknown ". Guessing one of our CWT members can make it known, maybe by a flag ID?
From 1861, listed as unknown in National Archives. I'd an idea this was of some quartermaster's because a massive tent is in the background. The thing is, enlarged image of the flag in front of those officers is a light square on a dark background. Flags used by the Signal Corp were dark/light background, red/white, reversed. One of each, right? Was the corps flag a plain square also or is this something else?
It's a square or diamond? On a triangular flag- no idea what it is, bet around 20 members here do.
Group of officers in front of that huge tent- seem to be boxes in there, not beds.
Group 2, a very young man in this one.
I'm not a signed-in member able to add descriptions in National Archives, if someone knows what this is of, may wish to send them an email?
