A splendid sixth-plate ambrotype of a double-armed Federal infantryman. Seated pose dressed in his frock a sporting this wonderful M1858 Hardee hat with an ostrich plume and infantry insignia pinned to the front. His musket is tucked under his arm with the bayonet attached while he displays a nice Colt 1849 pocket revolver across his chest. This image is housed in a very nice double sided thermoplastic case.
