He also befriended the Patton family and spent time at their ranch with their young son, George S. Patton, recreating Civil War battles, with Mosby playing himself and George playing Robert E. Lee.

The photo above shows the left hand on sword. In paintings you will see he is right hand dominate. A direct positive image for some photos was used during and after the civil war. The negative image medium becomes a positive image The result is not a "what you see image" but one that is more like a mirror that reverses the image. Personal historical reading by moderator on Mosby proves this point.
