    Description

    Union Parade Drummer with Oversized Drum Carte de Visite. 2.5" x 4", with a J. Sidney Miller, Nashua, New Hampshire imprint on verso, featuring an engraving of Lady Liberty. A full length standing portrait of a New Hampshire Band member standing next to a large bass drum and holding a large percussion mallet in his right hand. There is an NHV brass insignia and illegible number on the musician's forage cap. Bass drums such as this were not used for field music, but rather for regimental bands or parades. From the Bret J. Formichi American Civil War Rarities Collection.

    Condition: Lightly toned throughout, with some minor wear at the edges and corners. There is a small spot of soiling at the top edge of the mount. Light soiling on verso, with a small pencil notation at the top. Overall very good.
