Civil War Images

CWI 1. 6th Plate Ambrotype of a Triple Armed Confederate Soldier.

One mean looking hombre here brandishing a D-Guard Bowie Knife and Colt Pocket Revolver. There is also a pistol tucked under his arm. Image has some spots and blemishes but the content wins out. Housed in original leatherette case.


CWI 2. 9th Plate Ambrotype of an Armed Confederate Soldier.

Very clear with sharp details. This handsome Confederate is brandishing an unusual long barreled single shot pistol. A high quality image.


CWI 3. 9th Plate Ambrotype of a Confederate Soldier.

This dashing young man has a light colored shell jacket with high domed state militia buttons. Clear image but a bit dark. Does anyone recognize this uniform? The photo comes from a collection that had many North Carolina images, but that does not necessarily mean that he is a North Carolinian. Housed in a full leatherette case.


CWI 4. Half Case 6th Plate Tintype of Two Unidentified Soldiers Sharing a Whiskey. 

Great content. I cannot be sure if they are Yanks or Rebels but one soldier is pouring a glass for his friend and they appear quite jovial. If they are Yankees, they most likely hail from the Western Theatre. I say “5th Plate” size because it falls somewhere between a Quarter Plate and a Sixth Plate in size, probably a Quarter Plate cut down to fit the odd leatherette case. Ex. Greg Herr collection.


CWI 5. 6th Plate Tintype of a US Cavalryman. 

Handsome Yankee trooper. Piece of paper inside may offer clue for identification. Housed in a half case. Ex. Terry Teff.


CWI 6. 9th Plate Tintype of Two Federal Soldiers in Patriotic Thermoplastic Case. 

Nice little image of an enlisted Sergeant and Private. Both are sporting shiny new US belt plates. Ex. Terry Teff.


CWI 7. 6th Plate Tintype of Seated Federal Infantryman “Charles Wilson”. 

Our subject is sporting a cartridge box, cap box, epaulettes, accoutrement belt and bayonet. Also holding a pocket bible or diary. The name “Charles Wilson” is written on the reverse in pencil. Housed in a half leatherette case.

$250.00 HOLD B.B.

CWI 8. 9th Plate Cased Tintype of American Indian Chief Shabbona of the Potawatomi Tribe.

Nice image, a little dark. Taken before 1859. He was an important character in the history of the mid-West associated with Chief Pontiac and Tecumseh. Here is a most informative Wikipedia article:


CWI 9. 6th Plate Ambrotype of Mother and Child.

A very clear and touching image. A mother and child hoping daddy will come home from the war? Perfect reenacting prop. 


CWI 10. 6th Plate Tintype of an Ohio Volunteer Militia Infantryman.

Nice looking image. This young Ohio soldier is armed with a M-1816 smoothbore musket .69 cal., most likely altered from flintlock to percussion. You can clearly see his “OVM” belt plate front and center, as well as his cartridge box, cap box and bayonet scabbard. No identification.


CWI 11. 9th Plate Cased Ruby Ambrotype of a Fierce Unidentified Rebel.

This dude may be from Louisiana as you can see his round looped tongue and wreath buckle, unfortunately we cannot see what is on it. He is holding a small Sheffield type Bowie Knife in a threatening pose. Really cool and clear photo. Housed in an interesting thermoplastic case with the motto “CONSTITUTION AND THE LAWS”. This one certainly has character and quality. Ex. Greg Herr collection.


CWI 12. 6th Plate Tintype of a US/CS Infantryman. 

High quality tinted portrait of a handsome young soldier. Most likely federal, but he may be a Confederate in a pre war militia uniform. Housed in a half case.


CWI 13. Super Clear 9th Plate Ruby Ambrotype of a Federal Infantryman.

Really clear tinted image of seated soldier with Masonic pose in a full leatherette case. Ex. Terry Teff collection.


CWI 14. Another Super Clear 9th Plate Ruby Ambrotype of a Federal Infantryman.

Seated Federal soldier sporting a Hardee Hat with Infantry Insignia, hat cord and four button sack coat. Probably Western theater. Full leatherette case. Ex. Terry Teff collection.


CWI 15. Cabinet Card Identified to “First Lieutenant A.A. Burdick, Co. G, 12th Iowa Inf.”. Killed in action at Tupelo MS.

High quality large size photo with Minnesota studio stamp. Lt. Burdick was killed instantly at the Battle of Tupelo MS. by an artillery shell fired by Gen. N.B. Forrest’s horse artillery.
