Outdoor view of two standing Union soldiers holding their horses reins in a field. The soldier closest to the camera wears a dark forage cap, dark double-breasted frockcoat and light trousers with a dark NCO leg stripe. Both rows of button s on the soldiers coat and the horses bit have been touched with gilt. There appears to be insignia on the crown of the forage cap but it cannot be made out. The second soldier wears a dark, low-crowned slouch hat, dark shell jacket with double row of gilt buttons and light trousers. His horses bit is also lightly touched with gilt paint.

Clarity is good but the contrast is dark. There is some surface crazing near the center of the image but no flaking.

Image has the usual decorative brass mat and stamped brass frame. Leather case is complete and has an exterior decoration of lowers and scrolls and is in very nice condition. [ad] [ph:L]
