Ultra Rare View of a Union Regimental Execution duing the Civil War.  
Regiment is setup in parade formation around the scaffold set in the middle of
the scene.  A group rides towards the scaffold which may include the
condemned soldier.  An id paper came with the image saying that it is Private
William H Howe of the 116th Pa Vols being hanged for desertion and murder.

have seen portraying an execution which makes these incredibly Rare.
