    Carte de Visite of 9th New York Zouave, Identified The 9th New York Volunteer Infantry was the first Union Zouave regiment to enter the Civil War. Known as the Hawkins Zouaves, they were first formed in 1860 as a prewar military club from New York City. The regiment was uniformed in a colorful blue and red uniform which was based upon the type worn by French "Zouaves." The regiment proved its worth at the Battle of Antietam; more than sixty percent of the Regiment fell that day. This CDV pictures Charles E. Thomas in full uniform. He was a private in Company C of the 9th. "Based on the handwritten notations on the back, he was also "Great Grandma Dunham's brother." The backstamp shows the photographer to be Bailey & Silver's located on Broadway in New York City. Superb item.
