Civil War Albumen Photograph of Soldiers Posed with a Six-Pound Gun

Albumen photograph, 7 x 8.75 in., on a 10 x 12 in. mount. Seven artillerymen pose around an 1841 six-pounder, all wearing battleshirts rather than uniform jackets. One man wears 19th regiment insignia on his shirt, one wears a kepi with the crossed cannons of an artillery unit, and one wears F and K company insignia. The man at far right smokes a pipe with a large, flexible stem.


Provenance: Property of N. Flayderman & Co.


Excellent contrast and clarity.  Some light soiling of the print and mount, but a very good image overall.  Mount with bumped corners.
