Old Photograph

I found this picture among my grandmother’s photographs that I inherited. There is no information on the back of the picture. No one in my family knows who this person is and I have never seen this picture before.
Does anybody know what kind of uniform this is? I have searched the internet and found nothing.  My family was from Indiana and Kansas, if this is any help.

Almost Done!

Almost done the American Genealogy home study course! I'd be done sooner if I can just get pass this one assignment. I have to do a narrative report on an ancestors "compiled service record". I received a copy of my ancestors civil war records from the National Archives, there are quite a few papers but they mostly have the same information. My report "should be complete enough that it could serve as a substitute for the photocopied document" it sounds easy enough.......
