Michigan. Civil War. Grand Army Of The Republic. Cabinet Reunion Photo, 1885:
The scans pretty much tell the story so there is little to add. This cabinet photo is in very fine condition, and the image is unusually fresh and clear. Full size is 6 1/2 x 4 1/4, while the picture size is 5 3/4 x 3 3/4. It seems safe to assume, based on the photographer's imprint on the verso, that this a picture of Union veterans from Michigan at some sort of reunion in 1885. Further, that these veterans likely hail from the Hillsdale area. Possibly there are portions of the photo that can be enhanced so that some of the writing on the ribbons could be made out, and the specific unit ID'd. One should note the Corps Flag which is that of the 2nd Division of the 3rd Corps of the Army of the Potomac. That is, blue (brown in the photo) with a white square in the middle. Simply as a footnote, the 3rd Division was just the opposite - white with a blue square in the middle. A nice photo. Payment via Paypal, though other forms of payment are usually accepted.
