    Description

    Oval Albumen View, 7" x 5", of the "30th Maine Drum Corps Taken May 22, 1865", which is the period ink ID on the lower margin of the image. Eight drummers with sticks poised to play, also bass drummer in the back row, along with eight fifers. Doubtless the drum major, standing at the right with foot officer's sword. Soldiers wear various shell jackets, four button and frock coats, all with bummers' caps or kepis. Great quality, the image is in fine condition, just some minor water stains, none of them effecting the subjects. The 30th Maine mustered in January 11, 1865 and mustered out August 20, 1865 having been engaged at Sabine Cross Roads, Pleasant Hill and Cane River crossing in Louisiana, with a loss of 34 killed and mortally wounded. Archivally mounted in a period walnut frame. Rare subject and especially desirable with this period ID.
