    This is a Real Photo PostCard (RPPC) that dates from the 1920s.

    The Veteran is wearing the UCV rank of Colonel and has his Southern Cross of Honor pinned to his lapel.

    I don't know his name, but he was out of Arkansas and attended the 75th Gettysburg Reunion in 1938. About 500 Confederates attended the event!

      Thanks for looking racer-- he certainly is an interesting looking character.

      I have a good chance of putting a name to the face and will update if successful.

      Fantastic Scott & he still looks angry about the outcome. Intense photo. Thanks! Really nice that people like you share these treasures.

      I thought you would appreciate this OLD REBEL, buss!

      Yes, I did Scott & thanks again. Really intense pic. I'm still trying to figure out why people gum up their posts with "THANKS" (1 at a time) to anybody who clks a "LUV"? Just blogs-up my time & I just delete their posts. Seems to be no way to do a general communication to these people & I'm sure I miss some good comments. Any ideas?

      I am guilty of that-- so I am not a good person to ask!

      I just got a few more pictures of this guy-- I'll try and post them over the next few days. He has the same look in most of them.

      Looking forward to them.

      Love the almost comedic expression, aided by the eyeball enlarging glasses.

      I do think it's proper courtesy to thank folks for "love"ing posts. I do try to wait awhile after posting so I can thank a bunch of them all at once, but then someone adds their "love" a bit later so I feel I should thank them too.
