$195.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 945-88

Image shows two soldiers standing side by with one resting his hand on the others shoulder. From the pose one would assume these soldiers are friends, or in the soldier’s lingo of the period, they are “pards” which was short for partners.

The soldier on the left wears a dark forage cap and a dark double piped shell jacket peculiar to the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry with a matching dark military vest and trousers. His “pard’ wears a dark forage cap with Company letter “A” on the crown, dark frock coat with Sergeants chevrons and light trousers. This soldier is most likely from an infantry regiment.

Image is clear with excellent contrast. Mount and image are clean.

Reverse has photographer’s mark for S. B. HOWARD…READING, PENNA.

The 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry was organized in October of 1862 and was assigned to the Army of the Cumberland. The regiment saw action at Stones River, Mossy Creek and several smaller skirmishes.

During its service the regiment lost 128 officers and men killed, died wounds and disease plus others wounded.  [ad]
