Full standing image shows Burns wearing a dark civilian suit with white shirt and black bowtie. On his head is his signature high crowned hat. He is posed leaning against a balustrade and cradling his musket in his left arm while his right arm rests on his hip with his hand hooked into his pocket.

Photographer’s imprint on reverse reads, “PUBLISHED BY E. & H.T. ANTHONY / 501 BROADWAY NEW YORK / FROM PHOTOGRAPHIC NEGATIVE OF BRADY’S NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY”.

Image is clear and clean. Contrast is excellent.

John Burns (September 5, 1793 – February 4, 1872), at the age of 69, was the only local civilian to take up arms at the battle of Gettysburg. He was wounded, but survived to become a national celebrity.  [SL]
