    SIXTH PLATE TINTYPE OF FEDERAL SOLDIER WEARING 22ND CORPS BADGE, CA 1860S. A confident Union private strikes a casual seated pose for the photographer. The significance of this image can be found in the five-branched 22nd Corps badge affixed to the crown of his kepi. This corps was formed early in 1863 for the defense of Washington and became heavily engaged at Fort Stevens during the early July 1864 attack on the Federal capital. The photograph, secured in a brass mat under glass, is housed in a gutta-percha case molded with a fanciful agrarian scene on both sides.

    Very fine, the gutta-percha case has some minor chipping to the extremities.
