I need your help! This photo depicts a group of men dressed in costume for an event in the Waterville area of Oneida County, New York. It's obvious that some of the men wear military costume and others are dressed for the "frontier." The men on the ground look to be in either fraternal outfits or an odd assortment of Native American clothing. The three men in the back may be either in fraternal, ethnic or religious outfits. The date is probably c. 1890-1900. If you've ever seen clothing like this before please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The person who solves it receives a signed copy of my new edition of Uncovering Your Ancestry Through Family Photographs.
