5.  Poplar Grove Church:

In February 1865, officers of the 50th New York Engineers posed for O’Sullivan in front of a log church they built--and branded with their insignia--at Poplar Grove, Virginia. A postwar plan to reconstruct the church in New York City’s Central Park was abandoned.  Library of Congress
