Private, 5th Infantry Regiment, c. 1910.

The card frame of this photograph is stamped "Bigelow, Plattsburg, N.Y." On the back is written "Howard/Travelpiece/Shicksking." The cap and collar insignia clearly identify this man as a member of Company H, 5th Infantry Regiment, U.S. Army. This fits nicely with the fact that the 5th Infantry was stationed at Plattsburg Barracks, New York, until late 1914, when it moved to the Canal Zone.
