I agree, the medal in the photo is pretty clearly a GAR medal. 

See a good example, in a modern photo, of a GAR medal here: http://www.civilwarpreservations.com/catdet.asp?TargetItem=IR376&CategoryType=insignias

Again, no obvious reason I can think of for a former CSA Lt Colonel to wear one of those.

What's your Colonel's name?  And do you have his face, too? An obvious question, perhaps, is are you sure who the man in the photo is?

Good hunting!
