Fellow Sharpshooters,

I found a colorized image of the famous California Joe scouting for Rebs photo image of Company C's 1st USSS Truman Head.

It appeared in the January 16, 2016 post by 'Zuzah' from Denmark. This is the same image that graces the book cover of Berdan's United States Sharpshooters in the Army of the Potomac. I found that by clicking the left key of the mouse it enlarges Joe's facial and other features significantly, you can actually count each crease on his forehead and know he wasn't 42 years old when he enlisted. His 'private purchase' Sharps has been to the Regimental Armorer, who added a pair of set triggers; otherwise the rifle is Joe's NM1859 Improved Infantry Model.

Here is the link: https://civilwartalk.com/threads/california-joe.120798/

Another member of the forum added the photo of Col. Hiram Berdan and California Joe posing together (I don't believe Zuzah colorized the photo of them together)
