    Brady Photograph of the 8th New York Militia at Camp McDowell, Virginia. Albumen photograph, 14.5" x 10.5", from Brady's Incidents of the War series, taken at Camp McDowell near Falls Church, Virginia, 1861. An exceptional image of officers and men from the 8th New York Militia posed with their weapons in front of a tent. Of particular interest at the center of the image is a black man crouched inconspicuously behind the unidentified captain. You can clearly see details of the uniforms and weapons including the captain's Model 1850 Foot Officer's sword. This group of soldiers almost certainly belong to the New York 8th Regiment State Militia Infantry "Washington Grays". Shortly after this image was made the regiment participated in the advance on Manassas and the first Battle of Bull Run. The image has been taped to a backing board and matted. The edges of the image are chipped and there are areas of loss at the lower left corner and a 2.5" x 1" piece missing from the lower edge that is hidden by the mat, else in very good condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
