An interesting photo

My great-grandfather served in the US Army at the turn of the 20th century. From what I could tell from the photo to the left, he was in the cavalry as judging from a crossed sabre collar pin that can't be clearly seen on the photo as posted here.

I've always been fascinated with the photo, and if anyone can add in any more details about the uniform or the service at this time, I'd be appreciative.
