Pictured by an unknown photographer, five U.S. Marine Corps privates with fixed bayonets pose under the command of their noncommissioned officer, who displays his M1859 Marine NCO sword at Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. in April 1864. Marines participated moderately in the Civil War, mostly performing blockade duty.
