Take your best Civil War era photo. Take a picture of yourself in a very stale pose (like you have never had a picture taken in your life) and then edit it afterwards in some sort of grunge black and white style to make it look old. If you want to be very clever, try and make the enviroment around you fit the Civil War era theme of the photo.
