The 1st Sgt is Daniel Bowly Thompson. The date penciled on reverse of CDV is April 26, 1861 (only a few days after the Baltimore Riot). The woman is Achsah Carrrol WinN. MS Winn was one of "the Monument Street girls" who in July 1861 helped put "Maryland, My Maryland" to the tune of the " Lauriger Horatius" (the German "Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum") and have it printed by by publishers Miller and Beacham in Baltimore. This song that became Maryland's State Song was first known as "the Marseillaise of the South" because of its verses sympathetic to The Southern Cause of The Confederacy. She is shown standing in the photograph with her future husband Daniel Bowly Thompson.
