Sixth Plate Tintype of Confederate Soldier from Alabama

Sixth plate tintype of an unidentified Confederate soldier from Guntersville, Alabama, housed in half pressed paper case. A private, he wears a plain seven-button grey frock coat made of coarse jean cloth inspired by antecedent Alabama Volunteers Corps Regulations, with a sheathed Bowie knife in his belt. A source of hopeful inspiration, he holds open what we may presume to be a Bible. The soldier exudes a youthful innocence before the scars of war had left their mark. 


Image a touch dark. Housed in half case.
