This picture was taken in a Civil War Camp near Washington DC in 1862. Interesting thing is that it shows a soldier with his wife and children. It is hard to say if the woman had just come to visit her husband, or if she was living there in the camp. Either way, it makes an interesting picture.

US Civil War Infographic poster. Yet another mistake regarding Missouri. We were 'technically' in the Union but simultaneously had an Confederate government and supported the Confederacy. Most people in SW Missouri were CSA sympathizers. Missouri fielded regiments for both sides of the war, not just Union, not to mention the Bushwhackers, which were another entity entirely.
