It is worth noting that the CDV of the soldier with the painted backdrop and American Flag is from Arlington Heights, VA and appears to be a gentleman of African American descent. The other CDV shows a bearded man in uniform? ID’d in the verso as Rev. J.W. Adams, Concord, NH. Also one tintype shows a Union Army cook in apron with machete and knife sharpener and another, a uniformed soldier, with rifle and hat with shako front plate.
There are also 3 tintypes of Spanish American War era soldiers and 4 cadets including one signed from a cadet at the Kentucky Military Institute (post war) and one of a man in a type of military uniform (last image in album, not pictured).
Further, there is a CDV of President Abraham Lincoln and family and one of Abolitionist Anna E. Dickinson as well as two architectural/landscape CDVs of various churches, one notated NY? in pencil on the verso.
