    Description

    Trio of Cartes de Visite Identified to Brothers Emory Vanscotter and Chauncey Vanscotter, Zouaves of the 74th New York Infantry. Obviously these spectacular images were taken on the same in the studio of W. L. Sutton, Hornellsville, New York. The brothers are posed together, and each separately. The details of their unique Zoauve 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. 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.
