CIVIL WAR CARTE DE VISTE – PENNSYLVANIA SOLDIER ARMED WITH A MODEL 1861/63 RIFLE MUSKET – PENNSYLVANIA PHOTOGRAPHER:  This studio made Carte De Viste captured a young soldier in his dress uniform, standing to with his rifle musket fitted with the bayonet.  His rifle cartridge box sling and waist belt are both white, likely white buff leather which was in use by the regular army in the pre-Civil War years and which continued in use by militia units after the war began.  The image is a full view, including being staged so as to include the soldier’s shako setting on a carved wooden parlor table to one side.   

This image suggests it was taken before the soldier left home to join the fight as all the uniform components and his rifle musket present in like new condition and showing no wear.  

The reverse of the CDV bears the name of the photographer, “H. Hoffman, Shenandoah, Pa”.   

This CDV is in very good to excellent condition, with no edge wear or damage and no bends or damage to the corners.  (0801) $175
