This well uniformed soldier appears as he might have been dressed at the battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) in 1862. A series of photographs of the 1st Texas encamped before the battle shows soldiers wearing gray single breasted frock coats trimmed in black. This man wears a dark forage cap, with brass lettering on the top. Both North and South imported massive amounts of military goods from England during the war, and this soldier carries a British army pattern knapsack and a Confederate manufactured tin drum canteen.
