    Sixth Plate Ambrotype of a North Carolina Infantryman. Thirty-year-old James C. Moore poses in this ruby ambrotype as a private in Company D, 55th North Carolina Infantry. Along with a determined look, he wears an exceedingly tall gray forage cap and a frock coat trimmed in black at the collar and cuffs. Moore enlisted in May 1862, serving at Camp Magnum and Camp Johnson, N.C. before succumbing to typhoid fever at Goldsboro on October 10, 1862. Moore's unit would go on to a distinguished history with the Army of Northern Virginia. The image is clear, in its original case and accompanied by copies of a history of Moore and his family written by one of his descendants.
