Best Facial Hair in the Civil War

I bet you didn't know it was a contest did you?  Well, these guys must have.  

The civil war archives are pretty incredible especially when you consider how many photos we have of everyday young men that we would have never seen had it not been for the enlistment records.

This picks are great. The Confederate soldier on the bottom definitely wins in the facial hair department. Probably a comparably small consolation though...
