This man looks like he's intending on marching across the South and burning Atlanta to the ground.

This man looks like he's got a Napoleon fixation - or the photographer did.

The Nappy look was popular in military shots back then - I've seen a few privates and sergeants with it.

cameras took long exposures then,and you had to be still.

no doubt some jocularity was involved in the hand in the vest/coat thing,but mainly comfort waiting on the photog.
