    Sixth Plate Ruby Ambrotype of Louisiana Union Cavalryman. So very young, this lad going to war. His plumed Hardee hat affixed with crossed sabers tops a soldier's uniform anchored by a nine-button shell jacket. Some light spotting in fields. Case lid separated. A modern note behind the image claims it surfaced in 1990 at the Duncan Kenner Plantation in Louisiana. Kenner was a leading sugar planter and Confederate diplomat. Amazingly, there was a Henry Kenner in Co. "A", 1st Louisiana Cavalry, U.S. A son? A relative? Louisiana fielded two regiments of Union cavalry, the 1st being organized at New Orleans in the fall of 1862. These Southern men in blue participated in numerous western campaigns, including the siege of Port Hudson.

    Estimate: $300 - $500.
