    Possibly Unknown / Unpublished Albumen of Federal Infantrymen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.
