Description

Pretty killer sixth plate tintype of a young Federal infantryman. This kid doesn’t look more than 15 years old. Dressed in a New York state issue jacket. His cap barely fits his head. Full accouterments with his musket propped up against the table. Not only was this young lad fighting a war before the ago of 18 but he also appears to have been an avid smoker. A pipe stem and a pouch of tobacco can be seen sticking out from his breast pocket. Unfortunately his identity is unknown. I would have been very interested to know what happen to this young boy. Beautiful image with not a flaw in it. Nice early war image. Housed in a full leatherette case.
