Sharp, little ninth plate ambrotype of a patriotic Federal cavalryman. Very nice bust shot of this mustached horse soldier dressed in his cavalry jacket trimmed in yellow. He sports a patriotic red, white and blue silk banner worn over the shoulder. When this image was originally found the silk banner was still with it. Unfortunately it had deteriorated to the point that the previous only thought it not worthy of saving and threw it away. Very unfortunate. However a very nice, clear image that comes housed in a full thermoplastic case.
