DescriptionIdentified 93rd Pennsylvania Infantry Soldier Killed at Wilderness: Quarter Plate Hand-Tinted Tintype. 3.25" x 4.25", in lower portion of case, fine.
This sharp image features Edgar W. H. Stambach of the 93rd Pennsylvania posed with a comrade. The men are posed standing, one with rifle by his side and the very model of a soldier; the other with less regard to his appearance. The image is sharp enough to make out the details of the belt, uniforms, accoutrements, and badges on both men's kepis. A hand-tinted United States flag can be seen on the painted studio background. The image retains the brass mat with floral design. Affixed to the rear of the tintype is small article clipped from a contemporary newspaper concerning Stambach. It reads: "Edgar W. H. Stambach, (a Reading...soldier) has again returned to the Regiment. He was wounded at the battle of Fair Oaks, and is yet suffering much inconvenience from this wound, but like a true Spartan, would not rest until he had once more rejoined the "boys." He is now acting in place of Sergeant-Major Trafford, who had gone home recruiting." Stambach was killed May 5, 1864 at the Battle of the Wilderness.
Estimate: $750 - $1,000.
