|Mathias Rodrigues Vasques|
I find it interesting that the hat sitting on the chair resembles a U.S. Civil War era hat. It must have been the style of the day globally? I don't know. Any military buffs out there want to comment on this pic? I assume he is an officer because of the picture from Wikipedia.org linked below.
Now I need to find out if there are any military records from Brazil that I can research to add to what I already know about Mathias.
The link below shows a Brazilian officer and soldier. This is from Wikipedia.org.
