The One Scottsman is holding a 1850 Staff officers sword which leads me to believe he may have belonged to the famed 70th or 79th New York Regiment, the Cameron Highlanders New York Civil War Infantry Regiment. In 1861 the ethnic Scottish Regiment formed six companies attached to the 1st Division New York State Militia. Federalized after Lincolns call for troops, the highlanders served for three years as the 79th Regiment New York Volunteer Infantry. Colonel Cameron's brother was U.Secretary of war Simon Cameron and he was killed at the battle of Bull Run. And mustered in May 29, 1861. Of Washington, to June, 1861. S Division, McDowell's Army of.
