    Armed Union Artilleryman 1/6th Plate Tintype. Looking neither cocky nor afraid, this matter-of-fact Yankee soldier seems ready to man his field piece in defense of the Union. He stands at attention with both hands resting on the pommel of a drawn Model 1840 light artillery saber. The fellow's uniform boasts brass shoulder scales and is trimmed with the appropriate red piping that compliments the crossed cannon on the crown of his kepi. He is the perfect artilleryman. If that isn't enough, the subject stands before a highly detailed photographer's backdrop on which is a colored 34-star flag, a distant star fort, a marching infantryman and a sea of tents. The only "defects" here are the high points of the case showing wear and the front cover which has separated. This is a Union image that will display extremely well.
