"The photograph does have a green tint to it"
I guess they ran out of brown when they printed this modern copy of Gen. Cheatham! I am of the belief that the seller, who has an excellent ebay feedback record, is not knowledgeable enough to represent this as a modern reproduction. This is the danger I have harped upon to all those idiots who want to do the collecting world a favor by providing cheap "alternatives" to the expensive civil war image market. Once it leaves their slimy hands, it always ends up for sale by and to the unsuspecting less "street smart" dealer/collector.
