    Albumen View, 6" x 8", of Corporal Orville Young with Battle Flag. Young holds the clearly tattered battle flag across his chest. Color guard with shouldered muskets with fixed bayonets, full set of equipment, four button blouses or regulation frock coats and all wearing large black slouch hats. Young was cited by the regimental Colonel for his bravery at Jonesboro, Ga., September 1, 1864, "....when the regiment was checked by a murderous fire within twenty yards of the enemy's wall he (Young) ran forward with the flag calling on his comrades to rally. It was the first flag placed on the enemy's works." Very fine quality and near perfect condition , archivally mounted in a period walnut frame. Remarkable image that requires no further embellishment.
