I was looking at a Non-ACW site and was reading comments about a Union re-enactor photogrphed wearing a pinky ring. I then was looking at closeup pictures of the three Rebs captured at G-burg,(we all know the picture I am talking about!), and Two of those fellows have pinky rings! It also seems that the third has a wedding band on, but it is on the right hand. Now we all know this picture was taken many days after G-burg was over and done, so were these men on grave digger duty?
So how common was this? I did do a search before asking but really could not find anything.
