“On back of photo is inscription: Old soldiers taken 35 years ago by R. Zinn.” The inscription may have been written by Chester Ora Mitchell, father of Mitch Mitchell, the owner of the photo.

The photo may have been taken in 1917 at the Veteran’s Reunion as described in the August 1995 issue of Ancestors Unlimited: “Commander Cornman and the board of managers.....35--40 old soldiers who have been in attendance.”
