    BOUDOIR CABINET CARD OF GEORGIA SOLDIERS AT REST, ca. 1880s. Photographed by Wilson & Royall of Savannah, who are noted on verso as "Successors to J.N. Wilson," an active photographer in Savannah from 1870-1880. This interesting image depicts a group of Union soldiers relaxing in front of field tents, with Savannah's buildings and a church steeple in the background. Several of the group have formed a small band, complete with banjo and guitar. The soldiers wear partial uniforms, most being dressed in undershirts, pants, and Army caps. Two young boys dressed in full Zouave uniform flank the group; to the left, a uniformed police officer with prominent shields on jacket and hat. Image and card are in very good condition with one small section of backing card missing at lower left. Excellent and interesting content!
