Carte de visite photos with Civil War tax stamps

Civil War Lieutenant Alexander of the U.S. Steamer Cossack in his naval greatcoat.

He wrote: Compliments of Lieut. J.J. Alexander U.S. Steamer Cossack.

Young Prussian soldiers with their fancy dress swords. The card was handtinted to show the proper red trim.
On the back of the card is a shred of newspaper dated May 25, 1872.

Tintype of what appears to be a soldier, posing in a coat with army stripes on the sleeves.

Confederate? This was taken in Milford, Mississippi.
