This waist-up seated view is identified as Orlla Allen of Company B, 7th New York Cavalry. Allen is posed with his hands resting in his lap. He wears a dark forage cap with gilt side buttons and chinstrap buckle. He also wears a dark cavalry shell jacket with gilt piping on the collar, cuffs and buttons.

Clarity and contrast is very good.

Image is housed in a scalloped decorative mat and stamped brass frame complete with a full leather case with one broken corner and an exterior that shows hard surface wear. Behind the image there is a brown ink ID of unknown age that reads “ORLLA ALLEN, 7th N.Y. CAV. DIED FEB. 7th 1886 BURIED PULASKI.”

Orla Allen was born in Oswego County, New York about 1841. He enlisted as a private in Company B, 7th New York Cavalry at Sandy Creek, New York on November 6, 1861 and was mustered out on March 31, 1862 at Washington, D.C.

After his service Allen returned to Oswego County and died there on February 7, 1886 and was buried in Pulaski Cemetery as the inscription on the image says. [ad] [ph:L]
