Civil War Images

 

CWI 1. Cased 6th Plate Ambrotype of a Confederate Major armed with an “Eagle Head” Foot Officer’s Sword and wearing a CS “Coin Style” Sword Belt Buckle.

An impressive and clear ambrotype. This officer is certainly from the Western Theater and can possibly be identified through regimental histories. It is also possible that he is a Mississippi officer because the “Coin Pattern” CS Officer’s Buckle is thought to be a product of Jackson and then later, Columbus Mississippi. Fantastic content and the only known photo of a soldier wearing this distinct Confederate Belt Buckle.

SOLD

 

CWI 2. 6th Plate Cased Ruby Ambrotype of Private Josiah T. Brown, 1st VA, Vol. Infantry Regt. Co. H (Richmond Grays).

This fine image was reportedly acquired directly from the family and was for a long time part of the late Jerry Wright’s fantastic collection of Virginia Civil War photos and relics. Private Brown is wearing his Richmond Grays uniform with linen cartridge box sling and waist belt. The plain brass oval breast plate and rectangular belt plate are correct for several early Virginia Militia units. Note epaulettes and black cuffs. Image is very clear. Brown is sporting a small brass infantry horn insignia on his shako hat and is armed with a M-1842 Military Musket .69 Cal. His name is written on a folded UCV membership receipt that has forever been kept inside the leatherette case. I have yet to research this soldier’s history but can tell you something about his unit. The 1st VA. Inf. Regt. was organized from several Richmond Militia Companies and mustered into Confederate service in April of 1861. The regiment spent most of its service in Kemper’s Brigade of Gen. Pickett’s Division and suffered heavy losses on the third day at Gettysburg. Accompanied by a Certificate of Appraisal from CS Acquisitions.

He was a member of Co. D, 11th Va. Cavalry, McDonald’s Battalion during the War between the States.” A lock of his hair is also in the case.

CWI 5. 6th Plate Ambrotype of Two Confederate Brothers in Battle Shirts.

Interesting image. I bought this one recently from a Texas family. They had no idea who they were so they remain unidentified. They said their father knew who they were but he is dead and so is the information. Image is in good condition and clear with some minor surface abrasions. Nice leatherette case.

This impressive image is published in Shannon Pritchard’s book “Confederate Faces In Color”. Photo is really clear. Note homespun Confederate Regulation Sergeants uniform. The buckle he is wearing bears a Georgia State Seal. His red sash is hand colored. Housed in its original thermoplastic case. A copy of Shannon’s book is included.
