      the statue looks to match this one on a different pedestal of Union soldier memorial in Ypsilanti, Michigan:

      here's another identifying the sculptor as Edward Pausch. Seems this flag bearer statue was used in several locations:

      base on this one at Gettysburg looks like a closer match:

      Tallcakes has it-- memorial is the 13th Mass at Gettysburg monument:

      http://gettysburg.stonesentinels.com/union-monuments/massachusetts/13th-massachusetts/

      The memorial was dedicated in 1885-- would think that these are veterans at the dedication (based on age and clothing).

      The photo is a later copy as it is not an 1880s format.

      It does look like a scanned copy and there is a number on the bottom left were part of it was not copied.
