    Description

    Great Grouping Related to Marylander Thomas Boyd Edelin, 7th US Infantry, 1855 to May 1861, when he resigned his commission and became Colonel of the 6th North Carolina Cavalry CSA, serving in that capacity until his capture at Dinwiddie Court House, Va., March 3, 1865. Group includes an exquisite 1/6 plate ambrotype of Edelin C. 1860 in his 7th US Inf. uniform, pristine condition, superb quality. Identified by a period note in the case. Also a mint Washington bust thermoplastic case with the mat marked to "R. Cauch". Really a gorgeous case. Also a number of family items including Edelin's manuscript marriage certificate from Ft. Washita in 1857 and a large number of items relating to the Whiting family (Edelin's wife). Much genealogical information including several rare books. Very nice group with a great portrait of a gallant Confederate officer.
