Bust view of Private Martin Ulscht in a dark sack coat and a dark bowtie.

Image has good clarity and contrast. Paper was cut and pasted into a gold frame printed on the mount. Image has some light surface dirt

Reverse has photographer’s imprint for C.C. TAYLOR…WARREN, OHIO. Reverse also has a wonderful but sad period pencil inscription that reads “SERGT. MARTIN ULSCHT CO. K, 6TH U.S.CAVALRY. CAPTURED DURING GENL. SHERIDAN’S RAID JUNE 16, 1864 BY GUERILLAS NEAR FREDERICKSBURG, VA. SUPPOSED KILLED.”

Research was unable to find a known grave or any details about German born Ulscht’s death, who was 22 at the time of his enlistment in 1861 at Rochester, NY, and a mason by trade. A US Army Register of Enlistments shows him as having deserted on June 15, 1864, though obviously this was an error before his capture was known.  Might make for an interesting research project.  [ad]
