help ID uniforms and period

Recommended Posts

I have had this tin type for several years and have not been able to id the period or even the country of the soldiers in it. My guess is that they are a state unit from the 1890's, but that is just a guest. Can anyone help? I have already flipped the photo so it isn't a reversed image. post-10333-0-83090700-1424737066.jpg

I suspect this is some sort of fraternal organization, or perhaps state militia, post Civil War. US Army officers did not wear frock coats with a single line of gilt buttons.and shoulder straps.
