Mystery Monday: Civil War soldier

As we have been scanning photos a small but growing portion of them are people who are obviously related to our family, but the name has been lost to history. I plan to post them here, with the information I do have, in the hopes that somewhere on the internet is someone who knows. If you have any more information about the people in these posts, please let me know.

I know that this gentleman was a soldier in the Civil War, but I don't know which side he was on, and either is likely. He is related to my husband, but I don't know if he is related to the Walker, Boyer-Pott, Holly or Barbour side. I know that my husband's great great grandfather, Julius Ebenezer Barbour was a soldier in the Civil War, as was the oldest of his two brothers, but there isn't much of a resemblance to him.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
