Image is clear and clean.
The soldier is posed at the position of “SHOULDER ARMS.” He stands in front of a painted backdrop that depicts a camp of Sibley tents and cannons in a pasture in front of a high hill.
The subject wears a dark forage cap with a matching dark Zouave jacket that has galloons on each cuff. These were not highlighted by the photographer and are hard to see. Each chest has a scroll type tombeau highlighted by the photographer with gilt paint. Then coat also has approx. 16 small button on either side of the pleat and these have also been touched with gilt paint. The jacket is open, which is usual for a Zouave jacket and exposes a light shirt with dark trim running down the front. The subject also wears baggie light trousers. At his waist is his waist belt with cap box, bayonet and scabbard and oval belt plate. The plate has also been touched with gold gilt paint. By his side the subject holds his musket.
From the distinctive tombeau on the chest of the jacket it can be determined that this soldier is a member of the Jackson Zouaves who were Company C, of the 99th Pennsylvania Infantry. This is also attested to by a modern note hidden in the case behind the image.
The image comes with a standard style brass mat and frame in good condition.
The union case is in excellent condition. It is free of chips and cracks and has both brass hinges. The interior has a crushed red velvet pad while the exterior decoration is a raised geometric motif.
Nice rare image.
