    Looks like a US Army officer from around the 1870-1880s. I've seen pictures of plumed helmets like that from that period, but I can't recall ever seeing a picture of a soldier wearing one. I can't enlarge it, so I can't see any details on his hat.

    I can't tell what is on the helmet, but the cap looks like it has a 3 in a laurel.
