CDV studio portrait of an unidentifed Buffalo Soldier in uniform. Gustav Cramer: St. Louis, Missouri, n.d., circa 1885-1887. 1001 S. Broadway imprint on verso.
The officer, of either the 9th or 10th Cavalry known as Buffalo Soldiers, stands with erect posture, one hand holding his cavalry saber, the other resting on his scabbard. He wears his kepi, with his designation as part of Troop B clearly visible. In 1885, the 10th Cavalry was assigned to the Department of Arizona and the 9th to Fort Robinson, Kansas (present-day western Nebraska), suggesting that this officer was perhaps on leave in St. Louis, the site of extensive recruitment for both regiments in 1867.
Very small nick above subjects head; mount toned.
