Item No. HA3371JR Category


CDV sized tintype identified on the reverse as “George Smith”. There are about 3000+ “George Smith’s” that served during the war and a considerable list that died during the war. There are clues to his identity which may help in bring an identity to this soldier. His cap is worn with an applied wreath and his regimental numbers pinned to the top. Unfortunately they are to blurred out to read but there are two digits shown. Secondly he is dressed in a Zouave style jacket similar to that worn by the 72nd and 95th Pennsylvania. I did a quick search through those two regiments and came up empty handed. The reverse has an old pencil notation reading “Geo Smith died in Civil War brother of Eliza”. There is a second notation at the bottom that I can’t make out but it mentions Eliza Smith again. This would be a good research project and possibly a sleeper image if somebody is able to id him.
