I did find one portrait with some time of glasses on in my big Civl War photos that is edited by Willaim Davis and Bell Wiley .  They are the pince nez type


I was thinking as I was looking last nigh , (up late recovering from food poisoning ) that it would not have seemed manly to wear glasses and that being nearsided might have kept them out of the army at first .   I did also find a phot of Stanton with glasses .  But he was not a soldier. 


I agree Fuller Zollicofer could  have used a pair of good glasses that fatal day.  Would have saved his life .
