Previous owner noted the image was found in an estate in a small town in North Carolina located just north of the South Carolina border. Not sure if this is a Confederate image as both sides recruited in this area. The visible part of the flag's canton of stars appears to be an unusual pattern and during the earliest part of the war ie.The era of ambrotype production, the Confederacy was using flags that much more resembled Union flags than the ones they later produced.
