    Possibly Unknown / Unpublished Albumen of Federal Infantrymen

    Civil War Albumen View of Hardened 3rd Army Corps Federal Infantrymen. Measures 7¾" X 6¼". In the field with their camp in the background, the soldiers wear shell jackets and fatigue coats with a variety of headgear, with 3rd Corps badge clearly visible on some of the hats. Full equipment including knapsacks and blanket rolls. A combination of Springfield and Enfield muskets with bayonets fixed. One soldier wearing gaiters. Based on their stance, dress and demeanor, they are obviously a group of veterans. Camp visible in the background beneath a heavy pall of smoke, with log hits / chimneys. On the mount at lower right in period ink script, "Soldiers Army of P". Fine quality, perfect condition, archivally mounted in a walnut frame. Great Civil War portrait of men who have clearly seen the face of combat.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
