This wonderful pairing shows a group of Hood River's Civil War veterans when they were serving during the war and about forty years later.
The top row includes (L-R): A.S. Blowers, ?, J.R. Wilson, and A.S. Copple.
The bottom row includes (L-R): ?, J.R. Castner, S.F. Blythe, and J.H. Dukes.
Also, you might want to check back to yesterday's rare Sunday post in honor of the 100th anniversary of the armistice to end World War I.

I wonder if the person on the bottom left could be Edward Calkins?
