The Best in Civil War Photography! www.VirtualCivilWar.com

Thanks again to Funky for this link (I should add that to my common pastes file – I’ve stolen a lot from her recently!) Lots of fantastic, rare Civil War photos on this site, but this one in particular elicited a big, geeky squee from me. May I present Confederate irregular par excellence, J. S. Mosby. I know (and love) this photo well, but I’m used to seeing it heavily cropped, and for the first time, the crumpled Union greatcoat on the floor is visible. Can any other Civil War nerds confirm that this is Edwin Stoughton’s? (Non-nerds can follow the Mosby link for the backstory!)
