I can see at least one horse saddle to the right of the tent - were these cavalry soldiers? Library of Congress has this image - See Control Number: 2016646714. The LOC attributes this image to Timothy O' Sullivan, Photographer. Picket Station, Blackburn's Ford, Bull Run. This is a reserve picket station near Blackburn's Ford, at Bull Run.
The advance picket is stationed a short distance beyond this reserve station. In case of an attack the advance pickets commence firing, and gradually fall back on the reserve; then the reserve all along the line form and oppose the advance of the enemy as much as possible, and if crowded back, they retire slowly, fighting as they go; this gives time for the army to form and be prepared to give battle. MAKER: - The Library of Congress attributes this image to Timothy O'Sullivan, photographer.
