Very nice sixth plate, soft emulsion tintype of a Federal infantryman. Your basic, equipped Federal foot soldier. Standing with his musket held at his side. He wears a full compliment of US leather accouterments. His cartridge box is worn over the shoulder while sporting a US waist belt, cap box and empty bayonet scabbard. He wears a unique jacket for an infantryman. His infantry frock has been cut down, tailored and turned into a short jacket rather than the long, typical frock. A rather ingenious solution to the bulky and cumbersome frock. Housed in a full leatherette case.
