    Great 7" x 5" Albumen View of a Group of Federal Infantrymen, clearly battle-hardened. All appear to be wearing four button blouses with bummers caps or kepis, most with M1841 Mississippi rifles. All with full sets of equipment including bed rolls. Officer stands at right with M1850 foot officer's sword, soldier in the foreground eating hardtack with another soldier drinking from his canteen, as is a man in the background. The officer also displays a Bartholomew Patent canteen. Clearly a departure from the formal studio portrait, these men have obviously 'seen the elephant'. Fine quality and condition with just one minor spot of damage at upper right. Archivally mounted in a period walnut frame.

    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.
