Full standing image of an armed Union Private posed in front of a painted backdrop of a camp of Sibley tents in the foreground and dog tents in the distance with a large tree off to one side.

The young subject stands at the position of “PARADE, REST” as described in Casey’s Tactics. He wears a dark forage cap with company letter and regimental number. Unfortunately these have been touched with gilt by the photographer making them difficult to decipher. He also wears a dark frock coat and light trousers. At his waist is his belt with cap box and empty bayonet scabbard. The buttons on the coat and the belt plate are also touched with gilt. In front of the subject is his Model 1861 musket with fixed bayonet.

Clarity and contrast is excellent. Image is very clean. Brass mat has a floral decoration and the usual stamped brass frame. Full leather case has a repaired hinge with a scroll and floral exterior decoration. Interior pad is red velvet. With the image is a modern collector’s display tag.  [ad]
