Uniform Identification
« on: Saturday 27 April 19 04:40 BST (UK) »
I know this is not a very good picture but am trying to identify this uniform.  Any chance this one could go back to the the Franco Prussian War?  My great grandfather served and the was a picture of him...just trying to decide if this is it.
Thanks in advance--
Deb

I'm no expert but I'd say the period is World War One and the uniform probably U.S. Army. The white scarf or stock rings a bell but, at a quick search, I can't find an example.
You may have better luck.
