Click on an image to enlarge

This is a nice looking original CDV image of a Civil War Union soldier. The soldiers would buy these from the photographers in the cities or even from traveling photographers that would come to camp. They would purchase them in small quantities to send home to family or friends. This one shows the bust view of a soldier wearing a single breasted frock style uniform and you can vividly see the shoulder straps on the top of his uniform. It has the open field which denotes being a Lieutenant and the light color lets us know that he was a cavalryman. He has an impressive thick mustache but what really stands out are his eyes. He has the medical condition that is officially known as Strabismus or tropia. It is commonly called being Cross-eyed. On the reverse of the card it has the Syracuse, New York photographer Mark of B.F. Howland & Co. It also has the George Washington two cent tax stamp. Which lets us know it was taken towards the end of the Civil War. This is a fine image of a Civil War cavalryman.
