Old Photo of Civil War Veteran

Do you know who this might be? Please contact me if you do.

This photo was found at Live Auctioneers.com and sold in 2006. 
It had the following description with it:
Civil War CDW of a soldier wearing a Grand Army of the Republic badge. In addition to the medal, his uniform is adorned with a sword, belt plate and a sash bearing the symbol of a cross in a sunburst. On the lap of this older gentleman rests an especially interesting military cap with a large white plume. The decorated man sits with dignity in a chair, framed in full view within an interior that could be a home or a studio. Backmark identifies this picture as being taken in Chatsworth, Illinois.
