Eugene F. Loveridge

Hello, I am a Civil War memorabilia collector, and several years ago I bought a Civil War soldier photograph that is signed by a "Eugene F. Loveridge" of the 156th Illinois Volunteer Infantry in 1864. The strange thing is that I believe "Eugene" was actually a "EUGENA"...a WOMAN! By all appearances, this soldier looks to be about early 20's. I can't put my fingers on the info right now, but I had a researcher in Washington check the archives, and she told me that of the thousands she has researched, none ever listed as being a "waiter" at time of enlistment. Also, records show "he" lost his weapon, was made company clerk by the Captain, and never applied for pension - she told me nearly 75% of veterans applied for support after the war. If anyone can help me with any info about this Chicago area "soldier", I would be very gratful.
