This ambrotype is from the collection of the late Bill Turner and was noted by him as a Virginia Volunteer. He rests one elbow on a table and wears a nine-button jacket with shoulder straps, very much like some of the Richmond Depot patterns, but with solid color cuffs and collar. The buttons appear to be wood. He wears a narrow chin beard and long, but square-cut, hair.

The image has some thin brown staining at upper left and lower right, and the photographer seems to have lightly gilt the buttons. Nevertheless, this is nice image of a young Confederate volunteer. Study of the jacket type was pioneered by Les Jensen and continues in an effort to differentiate various depot types issued by the CS Quartermaster Department and their dates, and examine the many state and private copies. The image is housed in a geometric and floral design thermoplastic case with facing pad and is matted, glassed and framed. This would make a great counterpoint to a similarly posed Union volunteer.  [sr] [ph:m]
