We are not collectors or experts so please be sure to see all of the photos and consider them a part of the description. This Tintype photo is all original. The metal photo is magnetic. In my opinion the photo is in Good to very good condition with light wear in my opinion and the partial case is in not so good condition. But amazing it exists especially considering the fact that this is from somewhere between 1860 to the early 1900's! The image is of a Confederate 17 Year old boy with a coat of some kind on, maybe a uniform coat of some kind, hard for me to tell. This is, from the information that we have from the modern notes on paper found behind the photo, a photo of Private Peter Richardson who enlisted at the age of 17.
He was a part of Company D of the 28th Virginia Infantry and part of Garnetts Brigade. He enlisted March 31, 1962 in Bedford. He was absent for a time as he was sick with Rheumatism and in the Richmond Hospital and Also had Bronchitis. He was back December of 1964.
He took part in Picketts Charge according to the research paper we found behind the picture. According to the internet, the 28th Virginia Volunteer Infantry Regiment was raised in Virginia for service in the Confederate Army during the Civil War Fighting mostly with the Army of Northern Virginia. The 28th Virginia members were compiled of soldiers from the counties of Botetourt, Craig, Bedford, Campbell, and Roanoke and was completed in June of 1861. After fighting at First Manassas, the unit was assigned to General Pickett's, Garnett's, and Hunton's Brigage, Army of Northern Virginia.It was active in the campaigns of the army from Williamsburg and into Gettysburg except when it served with Longstreet at Suffolk. The 28th moved into North Carolina, then was on detached duty at Richmond. After that they fought at Cold Harbor, as well as endured the battles and hardships of the Petersburg trenches, and was engaged in several other conflicts around Appomattox. The regiment totaled 600 men in April, 1862, the time that this young man was enlisted, and reported 40 casualties at Williamsburg, and 47 at Seven Pines.
It also lost 12 who were killed and 52 who were wounded at Second Manassas, another 8 killed and another 54 wounded during the Maryland Campaign, and, of the 333 engaged at Gettysburg, half were disabled. Many were captured at Sayler's Creek, but 3 officers and 51 men survived to surrender on April 9, 1865. Sadly, I do not know the final outcome of this young man.
Not sure if that information is out there or not. All of the other tintypes, ambrotype, and Daguerreotypes came from his estate that we will be listing and were mainly military pictures and soldiers. The glass itself does not show any cracks and only a few small fleabites on the inside edge under the copper as well as minor scuffs which is normal. There is the Tintype photo, then a thin copper detailed frame, then the glass and then another detailed copper frame that wraps around to the back and holds it all together, this outer copper frame does show some wear as you can see in the photos.The outer black case has a really ornate and pretty design to it but is only 1/2 of the case and missing the bottom edge. You will get the additional piece of paper that was found behind it with the modern research notes on it to go with the photo. Again, we are not experts or collectors, but the prior owner was serious about his passion for collecting and for his research!!
