We were at the Appomattox Court House national park on a very hot September day. This gentleman was the character interpreter for the military governor immediately after the surrender. I'm scratching my head to remember the Captain's name. He did a wonderful job in character. We were advised to ask "may I capture your image" or "please strike a pose" because in the 1860s "may I take your picture" would have been taken to mean I wanted to steal something!
I decided to process this to look like it might have at the time.
