Vibrant hand coloring distinguishes this Civil War image--the blue of the young Union soldier's uniform and the gold of his belt catch the eye. Tents and three rifles, as well as the wheels of a cannon, and an American flag from the period, are in the background. He stands stiffly, facing the viewer, his young face embellished at the cheeks with red accents.
This is an excellent example of the phenomenon of soldiers sending pictures of themselves home from war.
