[CIVIL WAR - TINTYPE]. Quarter plate tintype of a soldier and his family. N.p., n.d.

Quarter plate tintype portrait of a soldier and his family including wife and two daughters. (Excellent clarity, some spotting to mat and preserver.) Housed under mat, glass, and preserver only (no case). The federal private wears a regulation frock coat with collar and cuff piping and a forage cap while holding his youngest daughter, who wears a lightly-tinted pink dress, in his lap. His wife holds what appears to be an image of a soldier in one hand.
