Help dating uniform

Recommended Posts

I have an old tin type photo (attached) that I think is my great uncle. He enlisted in 1896 and was in the Army Hospital Corp. Can anyone tell me if the person seated in the photo is wearing a uniform consistent with that time period or is it from an earlier time period?

Their blouses look line 1883--189? 5-button pattern (with or without 2 waist and one breast external pocket) which were still being worn stateside at the time of the Span-Am War. Hard to see the caps, but they look like they could be M1895 forage cap.
