Civil War Zouave Soldier Possible ID 4th Michigan 1/6 Ambrotype 1860s Tinted
Two images: 1/6 plate ruby ambrotype of a soldier, with original hand-tinting, and 1/9 ambrotype of a woman with tinted dress. The soldier is not identified, however, inside of the woman's case is a possible clue to his identity.. Written on the inside of her case is, From E. Walsh, Dec 25, 1862 Followed by a couple of more lines I cannot make out. Dakin Cash, who was married to Stephen H.
Cash, a member of the 1st or 4th (I saw references online to both) Michigan in the Civil War. Identity is not guaranteed, obviously, but it's a good starting point for further research.
The soldier's ambrotype is in excellent antique condition, underside of the glass slightly dusty, case covers separated. The woman's ambro has some light age-related darkening, dusty glass, separated case covers. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photographs".
