CDV is of Kilpatrick posed seated with one arm resting on a table. He wears a dark double-breasted frock coat with only a single star visible on each shoulder and matching dark trousers with an officer’s thin leg stripe. His coat is opened slightly to reveal a matching dark military vest. In his lap is a dark slouch hat.

Contrast and clarity are very good. Paper is lightly toned while the mount has clipped corners.

Reverse has no photographer’s imprint. Top has a period pencil ID of “KILPATRICK.”
