    Description

    Civil War CDV Album Featuring Soldiers of the 2nd U.S. Sharpshooters. This ornate leather album with embossed decoration on the cover and brass closure devices (one missing) contains thirty-one CDV images of which fifteen feature Union soldiers. The remainder are of men and women in civilian wear. Of the group of thirty-one images four have been identified in pencil at the bottom of their respective album pages, and several others are identified on the verso of the image. The men, Vermont residents and all members of the 2nd U.S. Sharpshooters, are identified as Lt. Curtis Abbot, Lt. Lewis C. Parmelee, and Captain Albert Buxton. Captain Buxton was wounded at Gettysburg and killed the following year at the Battle of the Wilderness. The other soldier images are equally interesting and perhaps further research could tie these men to Vermont regiments. All images are in fine condition. The album should be carefully inspected.
