The Civil War. Ulysses S. Grant. 1864

The photo was taken by J. Jones at the Rendezvous of Distribution in Arlington, Virginia. This was a camp where soldiers, returning either after being exchanged as prisoners of war, or after recouperating from extensive wounds or illness, would be held until the army was ready to forward them on to their respective regiments at the front. The tax stamp indicates the photo dates between late 1864 and the end of the war in early 1865
