This unsual patriotic photograph is Spanish American War era (1898) and is similar in size to a cabinet card on a dark mount.
Grandpa took out his M1860 Cavalry sword (three branch guard visible) and brandishes it across his chest.
One grandchild holds a large American Flag on a small staff and the other holds a toy rifle.
They are all ready to defend America's interest!
