A modern pencil notation on the reverse states that this CDV came from an album and the ID was unclear if the soldier pictured is Joseph K. or John M. Null.

Image shows trooper Null staring straight into the camera lens. He wears the double-piped shell jacket of the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry buttoned from top to bottom. Around his waist is his sword belt with rectangular eagle belt plate with applied silver wreath.

Image clarity and contrast is excellent. The details of the belt plate are clearly visible.

Paper and mount have very light surface dirt from age and storage. Mount corners are clipped.

Reverse is blank except for the above-mentioned pencil inscription.

John M. Null enlisted as a Private in Company A on September 24, 1864 and was discharged on June 21, 1865.

Joseph K. Null enlisted as a Private in Company I on October 17, 1864 and was later transferred to Company A. He was mustered out on July 18, 1865.

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 of wounds and disease plus many others wounded.
