A
private of the Army Hospital Corps from around 1880. He wears the five button blue frock uniform that was also worn while on active duty in the field. While in the field the pillbox
style forage cap might be replaced by the ubiquitous foreign service helmet or a peaked forage cap. The buff leather belt would also be replaced by a brown leather version with a snake
style clasp.
