Private, 23rd Infantry Regiment, C. 1910.

Sitting at his ease is a private of the 23rd Infantry, and perhaps from his cap badge I can make out he is from Company F. The 23rd was in New York state at Madison Barracks and Fort Ontario from 1905 to 1908. Two years in the Philippines was followed in 1910 by Texas stations at Forts Clark, McIntosh and Bliss, before the whole regiment moved to Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, in 1912.
