Antique Photo Daguerreotype UNION CIVIL WAR Native American SOLDIER Gutta Percha
Antique Ambrotype / Daguereotype UNION CIVIL WAR Native American SOLDIER in Gutta Percha Case; DATED Sept 1862. WONDERFUL estate find from Connecticut estate of. Gillett (Gillette) family, Wheeler, Mead extended family. I also had photo albums with pictures of other family members in Civil War (Union) uniforms. 5 members of the family served in the Civil War in Connecticut regiments. This Gutta Percha case is in EXCELLENT CONDITION; no chips or cracks! The case has the photographer's insert inside: HOLMES, BOOTH & HAYDENS' Photographers which was founded in 1853 in Waterbury, Connecticut; and it is dated SEPT 1862. The photo is a Union / Federal soldier in uniform; I believe this is a Native American probably an Algonquin Indian as many Algonquin served in the Connecticut and New York regiments. He is wearing a Hardee hat with the 2 insignia pins and ostrich plume he is probably cavalry? And Union uniform with typical piping on the collar. There is a little minor aging to the photo, but it is still very clear and easy to view. Case is 3" x 2 1/2". Photos of Native American soldiers are VERY VERY RARE!!!! The facial structure, lack of facial hair, eye and brow structure all seem to indicate that this soldier is a Native American. I have another one from the same estate, (a Confederate), so check my other listings.
