Steve, one thing to remember is US Civil War uniforms are anything but uniform. The subject in the photo could very well be in a cavalry unit, unlike european armies which had generally easily identifiable unifroms for regiments and services the US at the time was a hodgepodge of military and civilian clothing- especially among the state volunteers. I wish there was more I could say, but it's almost impossible to tell.
