$475.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1013-08

Tintype shows a young Union soldier standing beside a chair on which his snare drum is placed. The subject wears a dark kepi with a light colored band around the base of the crown and running up the front. He wears a dark waist length jacket with 11 buttons down the front and Principal Musician chevrons on the sleeves. The jacket is open to reveal a dark vest. He also wears light trousers. The wood shell drum does not show any decoration.

Reverse of the image has the remains of an orange 2 cents tax stamp and the remains of a photographer’s label. With the item is a Xerox copy of another image that shows an identified drummer from the 8th Michigan Infantry. The subject wears the exact same uniform minus the stripes and he wears a dark vest. This image has a complete label that matches the remains of the label found on the image offered here. The label is for WING’S GALLERY on Jefferson Ave, Detroit. Label has some writing on it but not enough to make out a name.

Image has good contrast and clarity. The lower third has some signs of having been creased but this is not obtrusive.

The 8th Michigan was organized in Detroit and served with the 9th Corps.  [AD]
