CDV is a chest-up view of Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll of the 11th Illinois Cavalry. He is wearing a light colored civilian frock coat, white shirt and cravat. Bottom of mount is labeled, “SARONY/ 37 UNION SQUARE N.Y.”.

Robert Green "Bob" Ingersoll (August 11, 1833 – July 21, 1899) was an American lawyer, a Civil War veteran, political leader, and orator of United States during the Golden Age of Free Thought, noted for his broad range of culture and his defense of agnosticism. He was nicknamed "The Great Agnostic".

Ingersoll was a resident of Peoria, IL when he enlisted as Colonel on 10/22/61; on 12/20/61 he was commissioned into the 11th Illinois Cavalry. He resigned on 6/30/63. He died in 1899 and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

Image is clear and the contrast is good. Surface has some light dirt from age. Image has yellowed with time.
