This is a nice, clear, CDV of an Infantry soldier from the Civil War. It is pretty clear that his legs had been amputated. There is writing on the back saying that the image was from the Discharge Office, Convalescent Camp, near Fort Bernard, VA. This photo was one of those kept by the dead letter office as seen by the staple marks at bottom and top. Some were claimed, most weren't.
We will never know if this fellow's image was claimed by a loved one. The item "Unknown Civil War Infantry Soldier Amputee Medical CDV" is in sale since Saturday, May 12, 2018.
