CDV is of Lieutenant Vivian K. Spear posed by a column and holding his Model 1850 Foot Officers sword. He wears a dark kepi with an infantry hunting horn and the regimental number “38” on the front of the crown, dark frock coat with 2nd lieutenant shoulder straps and light trousers. At his waist is his sash and sword belt with Pattern 1851 NCO belt with the spread-winged eagle and applied silver wreath.

Image is clear but the contrast is light. Mount has been trimmed at both top and bottom and at corners.

Reverse has no photographer’s imprint but does have a nice bold period ink ID at bottom “V. K. SPEAR 38th MASS. VOLS.”

Vivian K. Spear was a 27 year old watchmaker living in Lynn when he was commissioned a 2nd lieutenant in Company E, 38th Massachusetts Infantry on August 25, 1862. He was promoted to 1st lieutenant on February 27, 1863 and wounded in the June 14, 1863 assault on Port Hudson. He resigned on November 20, 1863.

Just previous to his resignation Spear was assigned as a 1st lieutenant in the 95th Company, 2nd Battalion Veteran Reserve Corps where he spent the rest of the war.

In the years after the war Spear traveled to Arizona where he managed a mine. He died there in 1901.  [ad]
