A full-length standing view of a soldier wearing a short jacket and cradling his cap in hand. He wears a saber belt with its rectangular eagle saber belt plate and a cap box visible. He rests is left hand on the hilt of his cavalry saber, which is suspended from his belt by a saber sling. His trousers, tucked into his tall boots, have the wide stripe of a sergeant and the chevrons of a quartermaster sergeant are visible above his elbow. There are some scattered marks and light stains and the photographer has slightly touched the pupils of the sergeant’s eyes, but the view is clear. As usual in Civil War photographs, the yellow stripes on his trousers show up as dark on light blue and blend in with his jacket. Quartermaster sergeants played a vital role in receiving and distributing supplies and equipment to a regiment. In cavalry units there was additional gear to deal with and quartermaster sergeants were sometimes appointed for battalions within the regiment. There is no backmark or tax stamp on the card.   [SR]
