Regis De Trobriand (1816-1897), the expatriate son of a minor French Baron, was an archetypical 19th century Renaissance man equally at home with literature and war. De Trobriand became colonel of the 55th New York and commanded a brigade in the 4th Corps through much of 1862.
All very good, with only minor wear.
