    Carte de Visite of Charles Quail, 140th Pennsylvania Infantry, Wounded at Gettysburg, Captured at Cold Harbor and Imprisoned at Libby and Andersonville. 2.5" x 4", a bust portrait, no studio imprint, with a two cent George Washington tax stamp on the verso. Written in ink on the verso, a contemporary identification "Charles Quail / East Bethlehem / Washington / Co / Pa / Co C 140 Pa / Vols". The image is a bit age toned and there is a small area of loss (not affecting image) at the left corner. Very good. The CDV is accompanied by photocopies of Quail's pension records, casualty sheet, personal account of his wounding at Gettysburg "concussion the brain caused by a cannon ball", and post-war prisoner of war records.
