Description

Wonderful 6th plate melainotype of this armed rebel soldier. Beautiful clarity to this view. Dressed in this very plain dark grey frock lacking any sort of trim or decoration. Unfortunately all of the buttons have been gilded over with the exception of one that lies under the mat. It is however to out of focus to make an accurate identity. Posed with this Colt M1849 directly across his chest with his thumb on the hammer. His piercing blue eyes stare into the camera with his face absent of any expression. Very poignant view in my opinion staring into this young mans eyes and wondering what was going through his mind as he posed for this view. This one comes housed in a half leatherette case. Super nice image.
