Me In A Past Life. . . ?

I frequently check a very popular internet auction site for items pertaining to the 48th PA or Schuylkill County's Civil War history. Last week, I came across the above photograph purportedly depicting a Civil War unit while stationed in Pottsville. Because of the hat insignia and other things, I am of the opinion that this is a post-war photograph, so I probably will not be placing any bids.
However, while I was zooming in on the photograph, I was taken aback by the fella standing on the far right with his hands upon his belt.
I am pretty sure I was not alive when this photograph was taken, but some one who looked an awful lot like me certainly was. . .
