A nice sixth plate ruby ambrotype featuring a young Union volunteer. He gives the appearance of having just enlisted, wearing a standard infantry frock coat, but civilian trousers in a check pattern.
In one hand he supports an unidentified book in his lap while the other rests upon the table at his side. An attractive and very clear image in fine condition. It comes housed in a pressed paper case with a patriotic eagle motif. Please see my other items for more interesting and original Civil War pieces.
