Troops building bridges across the north fork of the Rappahannock in the vicinity of Fauquier Sulphur Springs, Va., by Timothy H. O’Sullivan in August 1862.
It is highly likely that the fellow on the right is the photographer, O’Sullivan. This is the fifth photo I’ve found in this period of time – July and August 1862 – where he appears in the image.
Library of Congress image.
The four other images from the summer of 1862 with images that include O’Sullivan were published in the following posts:
- Timothy H. O’Sullivan. — A Photographer at Manassas.
- Locomotive on the Orange & Alexandria Railroad in Virginia – in foreground with back to camera, dressed the same as in the top image.
- Federal battery fording a tributary of the Rappahannock – on right side of image next to the same wagon as is in the above two images.
