    51st Infantry, this carte de visite photo is of one of the two guide markers returned by S. J. Gates, 195th Ohio in 1894. Led by Colonel John F. Hartranft. They were organized November 16, 1861, and most of the men re-enlisted in December 1863. The regiment was mustered out of service on July 27, 1865. The guide markers were presented to the 51st on March 10th, 1864 and were presumably carried until the end of the war.
