The Civil War
 Union Cased Images


11052 - A ZOUAVE LOOK A LIKE AND HIS PARD, 1/6th plate tintype in a full leather case. A young western theater soldier sits next to his pard who may very well be his brother. The soldier's jacket is nicely tinted blue with gilded buttons. The unidentified seated private is wearing a variant 13th Corps jacket issued to Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Iowa regiments serving in the 3rd Division, 13th Corps, Department of the Gulf during the second half of 1863. For reasons not completely documented several variations of a semi-Zouave style jacket are known. The style worn by the private in the tintype most closely resembles published photographs of the collarless seven button jacket issued to the 53rd OVI having single sky blue trefoils at the very top and (unseen) at the bottom (the sleeves block the lower portion of the jacket). The 33rd New Jersey wore a similar collarless jacket with top and bottom trefoils but in red trim. Other variants of 13th Corps jackets were worn by the 34th and 46th Indiana, and the 28th Iowa. The one legitimate Zouave regiment in the 13th Corps, Wallace's 11th Indiana, wore yet another variation with a sky blue front in the manner of a plastron. All indications lean to a member of the 53rd OVI. Sharp and clear, a rare western theater image............................$550.00
