Click on an image to enlarge

This is a nice looking original CDV image of a Civil War Union soldier. The soldiers and sailors would buy these from the photographers in the cities or even from traveling photographers that would come to camp or they made it into town. They would purchase them in small quantities to send home to family or friends. This one shows the Union soldier in his dress uniform. He is wearing his double breasted military coat. Around his waist he wears the eagle style of belt buckle and by his side he has his officer sword. The back of the card stock has the photographic gallery marking of Slagle of Washington, D.C. It has the identification on the back of the card that states it is the image of William S. Cooper who served as the surgeon of the 125th New York Infantry. The records show that Cooper enlisted on July 26th 1862 as surgeon in the 125th New York. He was taken prisoner of war on September 15th 1862 and paroled the next day at Harpers Ferry. He continued his service with them until June 5th 1865. The regiment saw service at several battles including Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. This is a cool original CDV image of a Union Surgeon.
