1861 Large Format 1st Regiment Rhode Island Infantry Civil War Albumen Photo #2 For Sale

1861 Large Format 1st Regiment Rhode Island Infantry Civil War Albumen Photo #2

Very rare and simply fantastic, original, 1861, very large format Albumen Photograph of the departure of the 1st Regiment Rhode Island Infantry from Providence, Rhode Island in the earliest days of the Civil War.


This outstanding and very rare Photograph measures approx. 13” by 9 1/2” and is mounted on its original, square corner, light weight photographer’s card mount (overall size of the card mount is 17 1/4” by 13 5/8”). The Photo is minimally identified with a period manuscript on the reverse that reads "Old Station, Providence Rhode Island". This Photograph, however, came to us with a near identical format Photo titled on the card mount "Departure of the Second Detachment of the First Regiment R. I. Detached Militia, April 24, 1861, / Lt. Col. J. H. Pitman, Commanding". That other Photo is copyright 1861 and carries the mark of the photographer - Gorham & Co. of Providence, Rhode Island. It depicts the Regiment in the square before the Providence Railroad Station and we are very sure that the Image offered here is another Photo taken the same day and depicts a company of the 1st Regiment Rhode Island Infantry in formation in front of the city's train station.


The Image depict one or two companies of soldiers in uniform assembled in front of the old Railroad Station in Providence, Rhode Island. Other soldiers can be seen in the foreground (perhaps awaiting their turn before the camera) and a portion of the crowd of people assembled to witness the departure of the Regiment can be seen at the left and in the portico of the Railroad Station.


Organized in Rhode Island in April 1861, the 1st Regiment Rhode Island Infantry (a 90 day Regiment) moved to Washington, D. C., on April 20 and 24, 1861. After duty at Camp Sprague in the defense of Washington, on July 16 the regiment was attached to Burnside's Brigade (Ambrose Burnside) of Hunter's Division (David Hunter) in McDowell's Army of NorthEastern Virginia (Irvin McDowell). The regiment advanced on Manassas, Virginia, on July 16–21, seeing action at the First Battle of Bull Run on July 21. It left Washington, D. C. for home on July 25, and mustered out on August 2, 1861. During its service the regiment lost 1 officer and 16 enlisted men killed and mortally wounded in battle, and 8 enlisted men by disease, for a total of 25.


This exceptionally rare, original 1861, large format, Civil War, Card Mount Albumen Photo is in excellent condition. Both the Photograph and the Card Mount are clean and crisp and very well preserved with no physical damage or wear of any kind. The Photograph itself exhibits sharp focus, strong contrast and rich, warm tonality. Overall this is a very attractive and exceptionally well preserved Image.


A very rare and original, 1861, larger format, Card Mount, early Civil War Albumen Photograph of the departure of the 1st Regiment Rhode Island Infantry from Providence, Rhode Island in the earliest days of the Civil War and a fantastic addition to any collection!!
