Identified Tennessee Rebel with CSA Pewter Plate!



Item No. HA28674 Categories , Tag


Outstanding ninth plate tintype of this Tennessee rebel infantryman. Dressed in his distinctive Tennessee, dark blue frock with cloth shoulder tabs. Eagle buttons run down the front of his jacket while he sports an exceedingly rare, pewter CSA rectangular belt plate! The letters clearly visible on the face of the plate as it rests on it’s pigskin leather belt. A wonderful bowler style hat rests atop his head. An old, faint pencil inscription resides inside the case which reads, “Johnathan Scott, He is gone, April,1862”. Johnathan would muster with Company A of the 25th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry in August, 1861. In April, 1862 the 25th would be consolidated into the 44th Tennessee Infantry and Johnathan would become part of Company A of the 44th. I would suspect that this is what the short note written inside the case and dated April, 1862 is in reference too. I could find no discharge information for him or really any information following his consolidation. Nice little image with a super rare waist belt plate!
