I think I read somewhere while researching that the Lafayette Guard, or at least the ones that wore the French Zouave uniforms, were all of French heritage. The writing on the back of this Zouave CDV, very roughly translated says, in part: Mr. Adams in his American uniform, Lafayette regiment.Then more words, and finally what appears to be a date of November 1862. CDV is in very good condition though it appears to be trimmed, measuring 3 1/2" x 2 3/8".
