Nice view of Caesar Dubois posed with one hand resting on the hilt of his saber. He wears a dark forage cap with upturned bill and stamped brass crossed cannons on the crown, a dark artillery shell jacket with light trousers. Jacket has brass shoulder scales and is open at the collar to show a white shirt and dark bowtie. He wears his sword belt with rectangular plate with Model 1840 artillery saber.

Image has good clarity and contrast. Mount and paper have light surface dirt and light edge wear. Paper has small crease on left side. Bottom of mount has faint ink inscription “CAESAR JOSEPH  DU BOIS”

Reverse has no photographer’s imprint but does have a faint ink inscription in French. There is also some collector information in pencil at bottom.

The battery was ordered to garrison duty in New Orleans. Private Du Bois died of disease on June 14, 1865 at Greenville, Louisiana and is buried in Chalmette National Cemetery in Chalmette, Louisiana.  [ad]
