Cool Civil War Photograph

I saw this photograph on Facebook friend's post and thought I'd share here, too. Although no information is provided on who is pictured, where the photograph was taken, or when it was taken, it nicely shows two soldiers whittling pieces of wood, a common camp time-killer. The wide-eyed soldier on the left (a sergeant) either looks particularly surprised or wanted to make sure he did not blink while the image was being taken.

  1. Interesting! What about the picture makes you think these are prisoners of war?
