$750.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 945-245

Image is a full standing view of a young soldier wearing 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 knee-high boots.

The subject is posed with his arms folded across his chest and standing in front of a painted backdrop which shows the view of a lake or river from a balustrade porch. Something about the pose and the look on the soldier’s face gives the impression of defiance and confidence.

Image is very clear with excellent contrast. There is some discoloration around the edges as well as some faint scratches to the left of the subject.

Photograph comes in a full leather case with a brass mat and frame that are decorated with geometric designs and scroll decorations.

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]
