    Civil War Soldier 39th Illinois Colored Albumen Print Suitable for the finest image or Civil War collection, here is a stunning 10" x 12" albumen print of an unidentified soldier from the 39th Regiment, Illinois Volunteers. This photo has been beautifully hand-tinted with far-and-away more detail than usually seen in these type of prints. The soldier's belt buckle is visible and he is holding his pistol across his chest with a sword at his side. A plume decorates his hat on which "39 ILL" is proudly displayed. A few minor scratches in the background affect no part of the image and could easily be restored (if so desired). Decorative period mat included. A special item.
