Apparently a number of men of Company C of the 4th North Carolina had their portraits made by the same photographer on the same day. Here’s that of Private Nat Raymer. It is identical in pose and background to the one I found 3 days ago for Alfred Turner.

This photo, from his family, accompanied a collection of Raymer’s wartime letters to local newspapers collected in 2009 in Confederate Correspondent: The Civil War Reports of Jacob Nathaniel Raymer, Fourth North Carolina, edited by E.B. Munson.
