CDV PENNSYLVANIA VETERAN VOLUNTEER

$50.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: P14023

This full-standing studio pose by Keeler of Philadelphia shows a neatly dressed infantry private proudly displaying a veteran’s stripe on his sleeve. In an effort to induce experienced soldiers to re-enlist the government adopted a program in 1863 that included not only furloughs and the title of “veteran” to soldiers who signed up again, but also the uniform distinction of sleeve stripe. In the prewar army these were awarded to reenlisting soldiers for five years of service and the system was modified to allow for the three-year stints served by most volunteers. This private has an air of determination and the stripe indicates he is, “all in.” The neatness of his uniform suggests he has obtained a new issue in honor of the occasion.

Some minor stains to the edge of the card, not affecting the image. Very good condition, clarity and tone. Keeler backmark and no tax stamp.  [SR]
