    Description

    Great CDV Portrait of Zebulon B. Russell, 7th Wisconsin Inf. Iron Brigade. Russell was severely wounded in the leg at South Mountain, Md. Sept. 14, 1862, resulting in the leg being amputated. Russell enlisted on May 11, 1861 and was discharged for wounds March 4, 1863. He is pictured here in his regulation frock coat with blue tinted stripes, on crutches, and his leg has been amputated. Backmark of J. T. Adams Columbus, Wisc. With period signature ID on the verso. A couple of minor wrinkles but excellent. Also included is a portrait of Russell, apparently prior to his military service, in civilian clothes and C. 1880 cabinet card copy of an 1861 image showing two soldiers in black faced gray uniforms with M1842 muskets. Although bearing an ID on the verso to a Vermont soldier the ID on the front, applied by the Russell family identifies the soldier on the right as Zebulon. Nice group.
