CDV Collection of Armed Union Officers and Soldiers

Lot of 6 CDVs of soldiers in uniform, posed in a studio setting, most with a sword in hand. All subjects are unknown with the exception of the mustached soldier holding his sword in front of a painted backdrop, identified on mount verso as "Geo. P. Lowry, 2d Mass. Cav'y." He served with the MA 1st Heavy Artillery and 2nd MA Cavalry. Remaining cartes include a Brady view of a first lieutenant  with a medical staff officer's sword; a bearded officer with sword in hand standing together with a young sergeant holding a rifle, (credited to Hollenbeck, Oneida, NY); and three portraits of privates, two displaying their swords (one credited to Marken, Frederic, MD), and the third posed with rifle and bayonet (credited to Keagy, Chambersburg, PA).
