Civil War Regimental Reunion

This is another photo of a group of men outside the Decatur County Courthouse in Greensburg. The one we posted previously can be dated to pre-1903 because the courthouse was still the original brick. In this photo, the courthouse has been covered with stone-like stucco, so it was taken after 1903. If you look closely, you can see that the men are wearing ribbons, so this could be another group of Civil War veterans, perhaps attending a regimental reunion. Since this photo is from the Ainsworth collections at the Decatur County Historical Society, it's possible that this is the Seventh Illinois Cavalry, the regiment Charles Ainsworth served with.
