See the photos of this Civil War 1/9 plate photograph made in 1865 or before. This young soldier is holding a knife behind a bunch of flowers. The knife blade and the flowers were tinted at one time. Hat is still tinted blue. The whole thing is very clear and there is no doubt as to content.
What this Confederate or Union soldier was thinking is another matter. Never seen anything like this and this was one of the first images I ever bought. I think I bought it in the 1970s.
Now that I think about it, I may have had it published at one time but can't remember where. Hence, over the coming months (and years), I will be. Over the past 50 years.
