On page 213 of Lossing "Matthews Brady's Illustrated history of the Civil War" bottom
is picture of officers of Unidentified Union formation.

However there are at least 2 clues:
1) Several of men in picture are wearing "+" Corps badges-possibly VI Union Corps

2) The cabin in Background was also appears on page 123 Vol X of Francis Miller's "Photographic History of the Civil War" showing officers of the 36th Illinois Infantry

Norman,

We've had a few of those Brady photographs posted, enlarged and such.

Wilber is the photography wizard and hope he will stop by the thread.
