Who is on the cover of Will the Circle Be Unbroken?

For some reason this is really hard to google. Who is on the cover of Will the Circle Be Unbroken, by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band et al.? (The first one, not either of the sequel records.) Is it Stonewall Jackson? Somebody else? A generic Civil War type dude? If so, what is that uniform? Please rest assured that I already feel bad for not automatically knowing this.

Looks to be Admiral David Dixon Porter. wiki

This article names "General Porter" as the subject of the photo.

(That exact portrait does not appear on the internet except in that album cover, according to Google image Search.)

I think it's Fitz John Porter, not David Dixon.
