Union Officers in the 47th Illinois camped in Oxford, Mississippi in December of 1862 during the Civil War
This is a photograph that was taken in Oxford, Mississippi in December of 1862. The caption reads: “On Picket No. 1, Officers Co. E 47th Ill. Infantry Vols., Oxford, Miss, Dec. 1862.” There are names written tiny under the photo, detailing the men pictured, but this version is very lo-res and the original needs to be rescanned for accuracy.
