A-005  Confederate Ambrotype

He's giving the snake eyes to scare
away yankees.  Ninth plate ambrotype
in full, but worn paper and leather
case with split hinges.  Jacket has plain
coin buttons and light stripes across
the chest.  I've seen these on
Mississippi and Texas uniforms.  The
eagle is a nice touch on his cap.

Image is a bit dark, much as you see in
the scan.
