Hi Sonny,
Interesting you got back here as I was just about to ask about the photo, 
therefore I'll continue. :-)

Actually I looked at it as soon as it arrived, went back to it a couple of 
times and wasn't quite sure what your title meant? Me looking at it as a 
photograph without any historical knowledge of what you may have been 
implying? As in the South vs the North if that were the meaning?

I figure it's the two "soldiers" in the middle gestering and smiling that 
are the point of your title?

As a photograph my initial reaction was ... "Gee he cropped that right side 
pretty tight?" Then I figured it was more of a grab shot inrelation to the 
previously mentioned two in the middle?

So how close am I?
