This 1/6 plate tintype features an infantry soldier standing in a white, canvas sided compartment wearing a state issued shell jacket with shoulder tabs and a
belt loop (seen on his right side) to hold his leather waist belt. The forage cap he wears on his head has a star that has been gilded. Additionally gilded are the
US belt plate, buttons, trigger guard on his musket and the handle of a single shot pistol. His cap box and cartridge box are also visible. This image is published
in my newest book "Civil War Hard Images; Volume 2 - Union" which will be released the week of Labor Day 2019 and is available on my website. There is no identification
with this image that comes in a 1/2 case. #11444=$500.00
