Crystal Cear Union Civil War Soldier New Hampshire NHV Ruby Ambrotype 1/4 plate
This image is sharp, clear, and bright. The soldier sits in the classic early New Hampshire soldier pose with the crown of the kepi facing the viewer so we can see the brass cap insignia. This particular young soldier has "16 NHV" on his cap, which places him in the 16th New Hampshire Infantry. He would have seen service in the deep south, particularly during the fight for Port Hudson. This image is in really good shape outside of a weird blob in the lower left. It doesn't really affect anything important to the subject matter and I think it was just a flaw in the emulsion when it was made.
Despite the blob, it's a beautiful image. It's housed in a half leatherette case. Please ask questions if you have them.
