The man with the small drum is John Montgomery Andres, He was a Union solider (9th Connecticut Infantry, but attended Civil War reunions due to his friendship with all of the confederate soldiers. He tried to enlist in the Confederate Army but was turned down because he was too young. Walked until he ran into a Union regiment and signed up. He was determined not to go back to the orphanage where he had been living.
