This is a photo by Alexander Gardner titled "incidents of the war"; his name appears in the far left corner. The only other caption is the word "Washington" in the far right corner.
The photo was found with a letter that states that this photo represents the War Dept. in Washington upon the signing of the surrender of Richmond, etc.
I have not been able to find another photo like this and I'm trying to verify if the letter is accurate and possibly identify some of the individuals in the photo.
