CDV shows a very young Lieutenant leaning against what looks to be a stairwell railing. The subject wears a dark frock coat with 1st Lieutenant shoulder straps and matching dark trousers. In his right hand he holds his forage cap.

Image is clear but contrast is a bit light. Image and mount have only light surface dirt. A light period pencil inscription on the lower border of the mat reads “ADJ. D”

The reverse of the image has a photographer’s imprint for BLACK, 173 Washington St. BOSTON. The top of the reverse has a period pencil inscription that reads “DUDLEY FAILEY PHELPS.”

Dudley F. Phelps was a graduate of Norwich University (Military Academy.) He was commissioned a 1st Lieutenant in Company E, 20th US Colored Troops at Riker’s Island, New York on February 9, 1864. He was appointed Adjutant on March 5, 1864 and was mustered out October 7, 1865.

During Lieutenant Phelp’s service the 20th USCT was assigned to the defense of New Orleans.
