Ambrotype of an Armed Confederate Soldier
Item Details
Description
Sixth plate ambrotype housed in a charming homemade southern case (the front panel is pressed leather). The portrait depicts an enlisted Confederate soldier clad in a rough-hewn jean cloth jacket holding a P-51 Minie rifle across his chest. P-51 Minie rifles were used in the Crimean War by the British and are rarely seen in images of the period. Many were purchased by the Confederate government from Edward Barnett & Sons of London, and ran successfully through the blockade to southern ports where they were issued by the Confederacy to various units fighting in the Eastern Theatre of the war. Though the soldier is unidentified, under magnification it is apparent he carved his initials into the stock of his rifle. [Civil War]
