A Group of What Are Believed to be French Zouaves and Chasseurs Posing for the Camera at an Unidentified Location (1860's)

A group of what are believed to be French Zouaves and chasseurs posing for the camera at an unidentified location, c. 1860's.


Thanks to Gary Dombrowski and members of Civil War Talk for pointing out that these are probably French troops.

My guess is these are NOT Union Zouaves but a group of French Chasseurs with Zouaves in the background.

Thanks for the comment. That seems to be the consensus at Civil War Talk as well. I will edit the information here but I think I might need more information to get it changed at Library of Congress' site.
