This item comes in a series of 6 individual pieces.  It contains a pair of tintypes, appointment/commission document, obituary and half of a Civil War period photo case.  The compilation pertains to the commission of David Kolb Love as Lt. Colonel of Campbell County, Georgia militia.  The document is signed by Adjutant General and Inspector of Georgia militia Henry C. Wayne.   Not much is known about Lt. Col. Love, but the document illustrates his promotion to Lieutenant Colonel and his term of service beginning on April 16, 1864.

The first accompanying tintype is an early Civil War service image taken of Lt. Col. Love.  The tintype is in OK condition with a smudge above Lt. Col. Love’s face.  The second tintype is worn on the outer edges but overall is in good condition.  The image was taken postwar of Love’s daughter, Elizabeth Cochran of Atlanta, Georgia.  Her obituary outlines the Love family lineage and is dated January 19, 1955.  Ms. Elizabeth Cochran was 90 years old and interred in Atlanta, Georgia.

There is also a Civil War period 3” x 3 ¼” photo case to house the tintype of Lt. Col. Love.

A description submitted by the family is attached to the items.  The family member was unsure of the historical details encompassing the item, but through thorough research Horse Soldier staff was able to verify the items.  [mk/ld]
