Image is a three-quarter seated view of a young clean-shaven soldier wearing a dark forage cap with cavalry insignia on the crown and the distinctive dark shell jacket with a double row of piping down the front peculiar to the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry. He also wears dark trousers and a belt with his saber attached.

The subject is posed cradling his saber in his lap. Also visible is the leather sword knot attached to the saber’s hilt.

Image is very crisp and clear with excellent contrast however there are several small scratches in the emulsion around the subject and one on his chin. There is also some discoloration across the top edge of the plate.

Image comes in a half leather case with a flying eagle motif as well as the usual brass mat and frame.

The 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry was organized in October of 1862 and was assigned to the Army of the Cumberland. The regiment saw action at Stones River, Mossy Creek and several smaller skirmishes.

During its service the regiment lost 128 officers and men killed, died wounds and disease plus others wounded.  [ad]
