Quarter plate tintype of a Federal infantryman. Nice little image of this soldier photographed in a camp studio. Dressed in his infantry frock and sporting a pair of leather gauntlets, he grips his bayoneted musket by the barrel. Perhaps taken on his return to camp following picket duty. Interesting military themed back drop behind him which I have not seen before which features a wood fence, military tents and a large US flag. Housed in a full leatherette case.
