    Striking 10 1/8" X 8 1/8" Civil War Albumen Portrait of Five Soldiers including Sgt. William Marland. Marland was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor as a Lt. in the 2d Mass. Light Arty. for actions at Grand Coteau, La. When "having been surrounded by the enemy's cavalry, he ordered a charge and saved his section of the battery".

Arty on Jan. 24, 1862 and rose to the rank of major, serving with the unit until August 11, 1865. The other soldiers in the image are also all identified and are all members of the 44th Mass. Inf. As is evidenced by their British snake belts. All wearing regulation frock coats and holding bummers'caps with insignia on the tops. Choice quality, really one of the finest albumens we've seen, and perfect condition. A gorgeous image with great history.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
