I'm trying to determine what regiment this man was in, but I have very little to go on. I have this photo of him in, supposedly from the GAR, and his hat has 5 V C on it. What does that signify?

Thanks in advance for any help

Welcome to the Researching Civil War Records and Ancestry forum. Usually the number on a GAR hat badge signifies the post.
