This is my third great grandfather Elial Marion Poulton (1840-1928). He was in Company D, 42nd Ohio Regiment. He ranked in and out as a private. On the far left photo, he is on the right. The two right ones are cropped to see the medals better. Does anyone know anything about Civil War medals? Specifically about the ones on the far right? Or, possibly what year this photo may have been taken (It's a postcard photo)?
