    CIVIL WAR SOLDIER GROUP PHOTO "THE AMERICAN GUARD" 71ST NY. Interesting photo of a group of CW soldiers with their rifles and gear. None are identified but from the backpack on the ground by the soldier seated to the right, it appears to read "71"... "NY SM", referring to and showing several members of the 71st New York State Militia. This militia was sometimes calle "The American Guard". The photo appears to have been taken the summer of 1861. There is no photographer's mark on the back of the CDV sized photo. Nice image with lots of content although a little light.
