Cdv Photo Civil War Union Soldier 3rd New Jersey Vol Cavalry Butterflies Hussars For Sale

You are offerding on a rare cdv photograph of a civil war union soldier from the famous and notorious 3rd New Jersey Volunteers Cavalry Which had the nickname The Butterflies or the 1st Hussars.The man is wearing the famous weird 3rd ordinary forage cap MINUS the visor; the shell jacket is laced like a musicians uniform in a way, but more elaborate with buttons in imitation of a European Hussar's. I was told the reason for the most likely yellow aguilette or chest cord is unknown ( in the light artillery they were to attach to the full-dress shako to keep from losing it if it fell or blew off while mounted ), but there's also visible the 2" leather strap for an over-the-shoulder cartridge box or dispatch case like that sometimes worn by mounted officers in full dress. This particular photo may be identified as I have found a man that look almost exactly like him so could possibly be a match. I have a photograph I will put with this one to show you the match and a link to the site I found. I think he is Corp Theodore W Elmer who died in a confederate Salisbury prison, North Carolina in 1865. The photo has a wonderful design around the picture itself, almost like a memorial photograph of some sorts. There are a few little scuffs the scanner pics up but really looks pretty good in person. The photo would make a wonderful addition to any collection, thanks and good luck
