Seated in rows on either side are numerous GAR veterans with many wearing dark double-breasted jackets and matching trousers. All the men hold their hats in their laps. One has a slouch hat with a 6th Corps badge while two other men have kepis with 6th Corps badges on the crown. Most of the men also wear GAR membership badges and reunion ribbons.
