Original U.S. Civil War ¼ Plate Ambrotype Photo ID’ed
to Robert Jones Burdette
This is an original U.S.
Civil War Ambrotype Photo ID’ed to Sgt. Robert Jones Burdette standing in full
uniform with Rifle in untouched condition. Robert Jones Burdette enlisted on
9/20/1864 at Camp Nelson, KY as a Sergeant. On 9/20/1864 he mustered into “G”
Co. U.S. CT. 123rd Infantry (date and method of discharge not
given). Report from the Adjutant General of the State of Kentucky.
The photo is all original and
very clear with great content. The photo has its original brass matting around
it and its original hard plastic (thermomolded) case. The tintype came out of a
very old collection from New Hampshire. Civil War Tintypes like this one with
good Military content as hard to come by. Please e-mail me with any questions.
