John Perry, 2nd Florida Cavalry, C.S.A. (?)
Florida State Archives Photographic Collection

This is another photograph that may or may not be as it is presented. Although identified on the Florida State Archives Web site as a photograph of John Perry, Richard Ferry, a Civil War historian who specializes in Florida, states that "The photo was offered to me for sale 10 or 15 years ago and after careful research as to the uniform and buttons along with the identifcation attached to it I seriously doubt its identification. At the time I thought the name was attached to it in an attempt to enhance its value."
