One of those rare quality images of the ambrotype era that just seems to reach out to the viewer in its simplicity, one can only lament the fact that this young man's identity and circumstances have been lost in time. Set on ruby glass with an 1864 cancelled revenue stamp on the reverse, one can only wonder given the age of our young subject if the photo in his finely green tinted shirt with crisp new suspenders and rosy cheeks was intended to be left at home as a keepsake. A simple statement of Civil War life, this beautiful ambrotype portrait will set well in any period Americana grouping.
