Description:
A Union soldier from the year 1861 sits on the ground, exhausted from carrying a rifle, his bedroll, and the weight of so much additional equipment. Standing next to him is a soldier from the year 1902 holding a rifle and carrying only what he needs in battle. Caption: Old soldier--So that's your new uniform. Well, I hope you'll make as good a record in it as I did in mine.
