Sixth Plate Tintype of Armed Union Soldier Wearing a Glengarry Cap
Sixth plate, hand-tinted tintype of an aged soldier wearing a Glengarry cap, which suggests that he may be affiliated with a New York State militia, although this cannot be confirmed. A British hat badge, possibly representing the Cameron Highlanders, is visible on the hat. The subject, who is seated beside a table draped with the American flag, has a Model 1851 Colt pistol tucked in his belt. House in full geometric/scroll Union case.
Some light surface wear to tintype, with small dimple along top edge of plate, near the center of edge (where the plate meets mat). Housed in full case with some light surface wear.
