Wonderful quarter plate tintype of a Federal cavalryman posed with trusty old mount. This bearded cavalryman stands in front of his mount holding him by the reins. Great shot taken in camp. You can see tents in the back ground along with boxes and other indistinguishable items laying about. There’s a large pile of pine branches with other rubbish all piled up directly behind the horse. Those cavalry boots look damn near to being waders and he sports this great Hardee hat with a feather plume. The horse has been tinted brown and the image is so clear you can see the matted hair on the horses side where the cavalryman’s legs are constantly rubbing. Slight red tint to the horizon in the back grand as well. Really a wonderful view. There is some minor crazing in the upper right hand corner but it’s very minimal. This one comes framed in a period wall mount wood frame. This one looks super nice. Really a great view!
