Nice photo of Richard Y. Lanius posed with one hand resting on a chair. The bearded officer wears a dark frock coat with captain’s shoulder straps and light trousers. He holds his forage cap in his left hand and his coat is buttoned only at the waist revealing a light shirt and thin tie.

Clarity and contrast is good. Paper and mount have light surface dirt on the edges.

Reverse has no photographer’s imprint. Center of reverse is signed in period ink “YOURS TRULY, R. Y. LANIUS.”

Richard Y. Lanius was born in Pennsylvania in 1811. He was 48 years old when he enlisted as a private in Company E, 81st Ohio Infantry. He was commissioned captain on December 12, 1861 and resigned due to disability on February 13, 1863. During his time with the regiment they were engaged at Shiloh and Corinth.
