This is currently up for auction.  Unfortunately, already a bit out of my price range.  Still, the picture is great and I thought I'd share.

If anyone is interested in bidding, I'd be happy to be your proxy...but I don't want to give up my source  Wink.  I bid it up to $50.

Any idea where the picture was taken or who the people are?

One fellow in the picture (I don’t know which) is Private Charles Burch from Akron, Ohio.  He was with the 3rd Cavalry, Troop B.
He enlisted in March of 1899 and served in the Philippines.
He was honorably discharged in April of 1902.

I just found it interesting that the uniforms in the photo aren't uniform. Some with brass buttons, some without. Some with belts, some without. Different types of belt buckles. Different pants. Some with leggings. At first I thought it was a school, but not with carbines. So were they from the same unit, or representatives from different units?
