    Cased Sixth Plate Tintype of Identified Massachusetts Draftee. The sitter in this photograph has a Federal forage cap by his side, the crown of which carries an infantry bugle, a "C" and the number "19". A paper label behind the image that reads "John Davis" in type augments this information. Since a John Davis served in Company "C", 19th Massachusetts Infantry, we have a pretty solid match here. Davis, an Englishman, was drafted into the regiment a mere month after it saw service at Gettysburg. No doubt there were plenty of vacancies to fill. A thin vertical crease has resulted in some emulsion loss not affecting the subject.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
