Man stands in soldier's uniform and looks with dismay into mirror as young woman cuts off the last shred of his hair. They are surrounded by other young women, each of whom has a tress of his hair. Caption: Military Mormon , recognizing the inconvenience of polygamy...each of his wives wanting a lock of his hair as a souvenir, before his departure for the war. (Virginia K. Anderson 10/01/93)
