Full standing view of Sergeant Norman Bates in uniform holding a large American flag on a staff. Bates is wearing a dark frock coat and trousers. The coat has an odd variant od Sergeant’s chevrons on the one visible sleeve as well as some odd piping along the left side of the coat. The trousers have the correct wide NCO leg stripe.

Image is clear with good contrast. Bottom of the mount is preprinted with “SERGEANT BATES” along with printed publishing information and an 1872 date. Bottom of the image itself has what is believed to be Bates autograph. In period ink it is signed “SERGEANT BATES.”

Reverse has E. & H. T. ANTHONY back mark with a period inscription that reads “SAYBROOK ILLINOIS.”

Norman Francis Bates was born in Derry, Vermont on November 6, 1839. He enlisted as a Private in Company E, 4th Iowa Cavalry at Malcom, Iowa on September 16, 1861. At the time he was 22 years old.

During his service with the 4th Iowa Bates was promoted to 6th and 5th Corporal before rising to 6th and then 5th Sergeant. He was action in 74 battles and skirmishes including Helena, Arkansas, Vicksburg, Brice’s Crossroads, Ripley and Tupelo, Mississippi as well as Selma and Columbus, Georgia. In the latter action Bates captured a Confederate flag and its bearer and won the Medal of Honor.
