Civil War Soldier Tintype 7th Reg.connecticut Vol.infantry W/thermoplastic Case:
Up for sale today is this Very Nice Civil War Soldier Tintypew/Thermoplastic Case. The soldier is Hiram L.Barrett of the 7th Regiment Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. Hiram was born in Woodstock,Connecticut on January 12th,1839. He was mustered September 12th,1861and captured at Fort Wagner on July 11th,1863. The 6th plate image is very crisp and measures 2 3/4" x 3 1/4". The date of'1862' is scratched in at the bottom right of the image. Perhaps this was done byMr.Barrett in the year that he had it taken. This is only noticeable under the closest examination. I found his diary online. It gives great insight into the day to day affairs of his years in the civil war including detail of his capture and his days in prison. I'm not sure who the little girl is. A caption behind her image reads 'Marrie 9 months'. There is also a caption behind Hiram's image that refers to another young child. The thermoplastic case is in excellant condition. No cracks,rough edges,or damage around the hinges. I have several personnel items belonging to Mr.Barrett. These are all up for sale on ,so see my other listings. All these items descended in his family to his great great grandaughter. These items were purchased directly from her. . Satisfaction 100% Guaranteed.
