    Description

    Exceptional Civil War Zouave Photograph Lot. Including: (1) Three cartes de visite of Zouaves possibly of the 74th New York Infantry. Obviously these spectacular images were taken at the same time in the studio of W. L. Sutton, Hornellsville, New York. The presumed brothers are posed together, and each separately. The details of their unique Zouave uniforms are clearly visible in the images. The rather shoddy administrative practices during the Civil War led to some discrepancies in the spelling of names. "Van Scoter", "Vanscotter" are but two variations found while researching the brothers on the Civil War Database. The man believed to be Chauncey is identified on the image as "A. J. Van Scoten". The exact identity might be in question. His brother, Emory Vanscotter enlisted July 15, 1861 as a Sergeant (reduced to ranks July 1 1862) discharged for disability. A fine group of images identified to a desirable Zouave regiment. (2) Tintype of an unidentified Union soldier wearing a Zouave-style jacket. The tintype measures 2.5" x 4" and is in very good condition.

    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.
