Civil War Cdv Photo Of John Burns - Oldest Soldier In War - Gettysburg:
Period Civil War cdv photo depicting John L Burns. Burns volunteered at the age of 69 carrying his musket. He became quite legendary as the oldest soldier of the war and I think the only civilian soldier. He was wounded twice. The image is by Tyson and dated 1863. Not sure if signature is real or printed. One of several photos I am listing that all have Gettysburg connection, all coming from the same cdv album.
