Civil War Period Carte de Visite of an African-American Man Dressed in Rags. A sharp, clear image of a young African-American man posed seated and dressed in very ragged clothing. A former catalog description accompanying the image describes him as contraband waiting to enlist, but no concrete evidence confirms the supposition. Trivial toning to the mount, otherwise in excellent condition.
