    38th Massachusetts Infantry Image. Framed albumen print, 3" x 4.25", on inscribed mount, 6" x 8" overall, showing five confident Union soldiers. A wonderful visual catalog of Union insignia, headgear and accouterments. One fellow even has the regimental number on his kepi. The inscription below the men reads, "Non Commissioned Staff. 38th Regiment Mass Vols. Hospital Chief. Sergt.Comisry (?), Steward Musician. Major Sergt. Sergt.".From the siege of Port Hudson, Louisiana to the Battle of Cedar Creek, Virginia to Sherman's final campaign in the Carolinas, the 38th Massachusetts was there. This hard-fighting volunteer regiment was organized on August 24, 1862 and mustered out on July 15, 1865. This image will be worthy of further research. Water stains on the matt and some chipping to the wooden frame, else an unfaded, clear portrait with good tonal contrasts.
