Read More →


Item No. HA8898BC Category


Sixth plate tintype of a federal cavalryman. Seated posed dressed in his cavalry service jacket which has been tinted blue and trimmed in yellow. This has a modern paper tag, placed there probably within the last 50 years reading “My grandmothers uncle Tackett. Mothers grand father. KY or HY”. Now I’m not sure what exactly “HY” is supposed to indicate but there are a handful of men with the last name of Tackett serving in Kentucky cavalry regiments. Housed in a half leatherette case.
