The Civil War
 Confederate Cased Images


1004 - 12TH SOUTH CAROLINA INFANTRY, PVT. J.P. ROBERTSON, COMPANY I, 1/6th ambrotype. Black thermo plastic case. 3/4 standing pose holding his musket in his right hand, unusual rectangular silver plated buckle and a leather cap box on his belt. A possible pistol or sword at his left side hanging from a sword belt across his chest. In answer to the call of President of the Provisional Government of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis, on or around the 1 July 1861, companies of volunteers from all over the Secessionist States began to bring themselves forward. The volunteers from South Carolina rendezvoused at Columbia, South Carolina, and were sent to a camp of instruction. This camp was located around five miles from Columbia, at Lightwoodknot Springs; there the men were allowed to elect their field officers. The first regiment to be formed was numbered as the 12th South Carolina Volunteers. The regiments' officers were, at its beginning: Commanding Officer: Colonel R. G. Mills Dunovant, Second in Command: Lieutenant Colonel Dixon Barnes, Chief of Staff: Major Cadwallader Jones. The 12th fought at Gaines Mill, Frayser's Farm, Second Manassas, Ox Hill, Sharpsburg, Shepherdstown, Castleman's Ferry, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Falling Waters, Bristoe, Campaign, Mine Run, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Ana, and Cold Harbor. Just the slightest solarization at edge of mat. Quite sharp, direct from the family...new on the market...........................................$3,950.00


9008 - A REBEL DOUBLE ARMED WEARING A KNAPSACK, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full leather case. This Rebel stands posing in regulation uniform with kepi showing the leather straps of a knapsack on his back. In his belt is a Whitney revolver and to his left he holds a Model 1841 Mississippi 54. Caliber musket. He also has a leather cap box on his belt. The image is crystal clear. There are rubbings from the brass mat around the edge of the mat but the image itself is free from any marks or damage. His buttons are tinted gold and his belt buckle silver, which is unusual. He stands posing in front of a canvas backdrop typical of a traveling camp photographer. If the mat was several millimeters smaller, this image would be near perfect. An excellent value at.....................................................$2,500.00

3201 - ARMED REBEL ARTILLERYMAN, 1/6 plate ambrotype in full case. A waist up view of a young artilleryman with the cuffs of his sleeves still retaining some rust [red color originally]. He has a holstered revolver on his belt. There appears to be an oval "Breckenridge style" buckle that is partially obscured by gold gilt but the "S" is prominent. The image has moderate solarization at the edge but the soldier is clear. Usual blems and small abrasions associated with an ambrotype. An excellent value for the price..................................................$1,250.00

7159 - A TRIPLE ARMED CONFEDERATE, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full case. A bust pose of a young Confederate most probably artillery by the dark color of his collar with two large Colt Revolvers tucked into his belt. To the left of one revolver is a Sheffield Bowie knife also tucked into his belt. Extremely sharp and clear with no blemishes. Quite moderately priced for a triple armed Rebel.....................................................$2,650.00


1134 - YOUNG REB WITH BONE BUTTON COAT, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a half case. Bust pose of a young Confederate wearing a coarse coat with bone buttons, an insignia or button is tinted gold on his collar and there is a partial star showing at his neck. The coat is sewn very crudely. There are surface blems to the plate which for the most part are away from the subject. His lips and cheeks are lightly tinted.............................................$350.00

1136 - CONFEDERATE CAVALRY OFFICER IN OIL, 10" X 14", period ornate frame, albumen photograph that has been highlighted by oil, actual size of image is 5" X 7" within an oval. A Cavalry officer posed holding his yellow plumed hat in his lap. On the verso of the photo in pencil is written...J.R...E Butler. In checking Confederate records, the only two Confederate officers in any cavalry corps were E.V. Butler of Border's Texas Cavalry Regiment and Edward Butler of the 45th Arkansas Mounted Infantry. The handwriting could be a E.V. Butler but there is no absolute way to prove it. Thus it is priced at............................................................$975.00



7601 - REBEL WITH POSED BOWIE KNIFE ACROSS HIS CHEST
, 1/9th plate tintype in full case. A Confederate in regulation coat, wears a two piece buckle that has been tinted gold along with his buttons. He holds a bowie knife across his chest. A nice image at....................................................
$1,495.00

120905 - ARMED REBEL SIXTH PLATE, 1/6th plate tintype in full case. A young Rebel seated posing with a Colt Navy 36 caliber revolver across his chest. His gray uniform is clearly seen with tinted buttons under a darker frock coat. He sits in a Victorian chair posing for the photographer. Just purchased from a Texas book dealer, but no definitive place of origin. Possibly the chair may be linked to other Texas photos.....................................$1,625.00


73003 - YOUNG REBEL WITH FANTASTIC DETAILED POWDER FLASK, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full leather case. This young Confederate poses seated wearing a lightly tinted light jacket, large revolver in his belt and a brass powder horn on his belt that is so detailed you can see the cannon scene. Good details............$2,200.00


73005 - TRIPLE ARMED VIRGINIA INFANTRYMAN
, 1/6th plate ambrotype in full case. Full standing Virginia infantryman holding his musket and fixed bayonet at his side, a holstered pistol on his belt as well as a huge sheathed BOWIE knife.
