I know this is a long shot; perhaps impossible but will give it a try.  This photo may have been taken in the Springfield, MO locale.  Can you ID the Officer's rank by what is shown in the photo?  Does anyone have an idea of who these two men would be?  Thanks.

Based on the single row of buttons on the frock coat, he is a Company Grade Officer (Lt or Captain).  Can you make out 1 bar or two bars on the shoulder strap?  That would nail-down the rank.

No, Kurt.  I can't see the shoulder boards clear enough to tell.  Thanks for the info. keith
