TMTA-Men with Beards/Moustaches

The bearded gentleman on this ATC is my husband's great-great grandfather. He fought for both the Union and the Confederacy during the War Between the States. I thought it fitting to double his image and add the flags of both sides of the conflict. This is my contribution to the challenge at TMTA.

Good heavens, he fought BOTH sides?

Guess he was a "Rebkee" or maybe a "Yankel."

It's a very clever card!
