This 1890s cabinet card shows a NH veteran in his full Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) uniform. He wears a GAR sack coat with his membership medal pinned to the chest. He also has a GAR sword and belt/ buckle rig. Finally, his hat with "GAR" wreath is visible on the table.
While the soldier is identified on the back-- I haven't been able to pin down which "Charles Carter" his is. There are four or five possibles. Census research will probably ID, but geneaological research is not my strong suit!
