This photo was taken by Herrick & Dirr of Vicksburg, Mississippi. There is a pencil notation on the back (see photo #5).We make out the words: Sergt. Our research indicates there were some CDV's created after Bates reached Washington to celebrate his accomplishment. The significance of this CDV is that it was taken in Vicksburg where his trek began.
CDV has faded and there is a dark spot in the upper right hand corner-we do not know if this is a stain or shadow. Measures about 2.5 X 4. We believe this CDV to be rare.
