Description The David L. Hack Civil War Photography Collection. This is a black and white photograph of Union soldiers in a field of their camp, either practicing or preparing to march. The scene appears to be winter with the deciduous trees bare in the background. The left corner of the photo contains the tracks of a wagon pulling the viewer down the sloping land to the center of the picture toward the military men playing the drums and brass instruments. Then off to the front right of the frame a group of four men are standing about in a circle. Farther back there are rows and groups of men lined up with their rifles over their shoulders. Then between the rows of men and the trees of the background are the many arranged tents. This is Plate 10 from _Gardner's Photographic Sketchbook of the War_ (Hack Collection No. 50).
