    I purchased a ornate frame that had a wooden panel that had the lithograph showing, after removing the back I found the military photo. On the front of the military photo it has a small white No 37 on the photo. With what either looks like a C.H. Boring on the back or a C S C Boring. I would love to find out what war the photo is from. Any ideas is much appreciated.

      I'd look at Baring too.
      C. H. Baring.

      Spanish American War or Philippine Insurrection.

      What would the No 37 mean? I've search regiment and troop.

      Probably a photographers notation made on the original negative.

      Some close up shots may be helpful-- try and look for numbers and insignia on the hats.

      interesting uniforms! i would've guessed summer theatre troupe in the swiss alps or something along those lines.

      To me this looks american. The blanket rolls were commonly used by campaigners and confederate soldiers of the civil war. http://www.teotwawki-blog.com/2012/08/tip-of-week-blanket-roll.html

      The officer with the handgun in the belt looks much more American than Swiss. Interestingly, the name CH Baring pops up in the army listing for the confederate army, http://www.fold3.com/page/637814556_c_h_baring/

      I saw the Waller's Regiment Texas Cavalry reference.

      Another possibility is C. H. Bering.

      About the print: Mountain Paradise (1937) by the artist John Herbert (or Hubert) Alger, Born in Boston Feb. 25, 1879. Educated at Lowell Institute of Designs and Mass. Institute of Technology. Artist and Teacher, T. McKee Vocational School and St. George, Staten Island , N.Y.

      I agree with Scott, everything points to Spanish American War era. Blanket rolls were also used during that conflict. What I can make out of the rank insignia on the enlisted men, Mills cartridge belt and H-buckle on the sergeant just in front of the officer on the left, the officer's swords, campaign hats, etc, etc. All point to Americans at the end of the 19th Century.
