    Great Composite Albumen Photograph of the "Iron Brigade" Band from the Personal Effects of Nathan Jacobs of the Brigade Band. Archivally Framed and mounted with the large image in the center showing all the band's instruments including drums and brass horns, decoratively arrayed with a large hand lettered sign in front "Iron Brigade Band". The oval image is 5 1/8" X 7". This is surrounded by 17 2" X 2 1/2" albumen portraits, doubtless trimmed down from cartes-de-visites of the band members. Appears to have been mounted in its current configuration in recent years with a period tag on the back with Jacobs' name. All images in fine condition and a remarkable compilation of images of the military musical organization that accompanied one of the most famous and hard fought units in the Union Army.

    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.
