Documentary Research (Invalid Corps) – #CivilWar Soldier CDVs

I’m working on a documentary short about people with ‪#‎disabilities‬ in the ‪#‎CivilWar‬. What caught my attention was coming across a couple of images from auction sites.

The first is titled: Civil War Soldier CDV Dwarf Rare Photo Rifle Armed Pic

The note on the auction website says: “Very unusual oversized cabinet CDV of a dwarf with a long beard, dressed in uniform with kepi and holding a gun. The picture was taken by Griffin & Watkins, which operated in Princeton, Kentucky during the latter part of the 19th century. Back of the card reads ”Portraits in Oil, Pastille & Crayon Old Pictures Copied and Enlarged.” Image very sharp. Card in superb condition. Measures 4” x 6”. Very interesting image.”

The second is titled:  Civil war unidentified midget dwarf union soldier officer cdv photograph

I wonder if anyone has any additional information on either of these individuals?
