This is without a doubt one of the finest and most pleasing Civil War images that I have owned in a long time. Seated at a table are 2 cavalry sergeants smoking cigars and pouring a drink. The buttons on theirs uniforms, leg stripes. Insignia, buttons on their kepis, and handles on the swords are tinted in gold.
They are seated with their legs crossed. Propped in front of the table are 2 swords crossed for support and show.
The entire composition is centered and balanced. This is truly a fantastic image worthy of any collection, Civil War or otherwise.
