First Federal (Union) Occupation

Greencoat

The guard-mount photo, in front of the O’Bannon house on slide #14, is one of the very few taken of the Sharpshooters in their green frock coats while in the field.  This photo is a studio image of a Sharpshooter in full regalia, including leather leggings, a fur covered knapsack, and a special hat.  Notice he is still armed with a Colt Revolving Rifle.
