Photograph taken on October 20, 1897, of a reunion of the survivors of Company A, 16th Missouri Infantry. The 16th Missouri Infantry was a Confederate regiment organized in August 1862 as the 7th Missouri Infantry; it was redesignated the 16th Missouri Infantry in January 1864. The 16th fought in the battles of Lone Jack, Prairie Grove, and Helena, and surrendered on May 26, 1865.
Numbers appear on the people in the photograph to identify them; the mount with the identifying information has been broken off, however, leaving only the date of the photograph.
