Quarter Plate Tintype of 146th NY Volunteer, "Garrard's Tigers" Zouave Regiment

Quarter plate tintype portrait of a soldier sitting on a bench/trunk in a studio setting with a painted camp scene serving as the backdrop. Housed in full, pressed paper case. The subject is clad in the Zouave-style uniform of baggy blue trousers and red sash characteristic of the 146th New York Regiment, also known as “Garrard’s Tigers.” While the subject is unidentified, a modern paper label accompanying the image suggests that the subject may be Edward Paine or George Tibbets, although these identifications cannot be confirmed.
