1864 Army of the Potomac winter headquarters

For me a good recolored photo will show shades of different greens in
a thickly wooded frame. This is what I was shooting for here.

February 1864. Brandy Station, Virginia. Secret Service officers.
Seated from right to left:
Col. George H. Sharpe, John G. Babcock, unidentified and Lt. Col. John McEntee.
8x10 glass-plate negative from a collection compiled by Hirst Milhollen and Donald Mugridge

John C. aka John G. Babcock
photos taken on 1862: 
"John C. Babcock, a Secret Service man and Gimlet, a celebrated war horse of the Rappahannock."
