2nd Regiment, Company F of the Rhode Island Volunteers

Last week I began identifying photographs from a large plastic bin in our backlog.  The bin held a variety of images from various donations over the years.  Loads of great stuff - some of it well identified and unfortunately, some with very little contextual information.   I came across a folder of photographs that piqued my interest.  Sometimes when you work in an archive you find a little trove and then you're down the rabbit hole, so to speak.  I just couldn't get the men in these images out of my head and so I decided to do some research.
