    Description

    Great Civil War Carte-de-Visite of a Drummer of the 37th New Jersey Vol. Inf. Young drummer wears non-reg musician's shell jacket with shoulder tabs and horizontal breast piping. Kepi with 37 on the front, wide belt with brass frame buckle, trousers with seam welt. Drum on the pedestal at his side with what is apparently the regimental seal with 37 in the center, drum sling suspended from the drum at the side. Interestingly the drum uses hooks for the ropes to pass through, providing additional documentation for the use of drums in this configuration in the latter stages of the war, the 37th being mustered in June of 1864. The regiment saw duty in the trenches of Petersburg and mustered out October 1, 1864. About perfect condition with backmark of Victor Piard, 150 Grand St., Jersey City. A very scarce and desirable Civil War image.
