am not sure of who they are.  If anyone can identify the men I would like to know.

Your site, "Officers of the 198th Reg't NYS Vols," is magnificent.  The caption of the second photo reads, "this is an earlier picture of the Officers of the 189th Vol Civil War the man on the very far left is Brady that took the picture.  other then that I am not sure of who they are.  If anyone can identify the men I would like to know."  The officer seated in the first row, second from left, is my great grandfather, Elias Horton, beyond a shadow of a doubt.  I have other photos of him. 

Thanks very much for this photo!!

He was one of the first volunteers who in 1861 shouldered the musket for right against wrong, freedom against slavery, democracy against aristocracy.

Entering Company I, 34th NY, as a private, he served two years faithfully. He was in the battles of Ball's Bluff, seige of Yorktown, Seven Day's Fight on the Peninsula, South Mountain, Antietam, first and second Fredericksburgh. He wins promotion as Sergeant, and then as Orderly, and is discharged with his regiment at Albany, July, 1863.
