CDV shows Marshall seated in civilian clothes with a kepi resting in his lap.

Contrast and clarity are a bit on the light side but all details are clearly visible. Paper and mount are good.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for STONEWALL ART GALLERY, BOUDE & MILEY, LEXINGTON, VA. There is also a modern pencil ID at top. ID is confirmed by other on-line images of Marshall.

Alfred Marshall was born on Christmas Day 1845 in Richmond, Virginia. He was a member of the Class of 1866 at VMI and during the battle of New Market he served as a corporal in Company D of the Cadet Battalion. He was also a founder of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.

From 1866 to 1867 he was an assistant professor of math and tactics at VMI. After his resignation from VMI he took up engineering and worked for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad before moving south to work on the Mobile and Texas Railroad.

He died of “swamp fever” in Mobile, Alabama on September 22, 1870. His body was returned to Richmond, Virginia where it was interred in Hollywood Cemetery.  [ad] [ph:L]
