#14806 - Tintype Young Trooper with Sweetheart Lock Hair
This is a Civil War era ninth-plate Tintype of a young, scrappy Union private seated with his hand over his heart. Dedicating his life on earth to the Union, or, to his imagined union with the girl he left behind at home to go to War? There is a small lock of strawberry-blonde hair under the glass over his image. Still locked in love after over 150 years! Image is minimally dark on contrast. Comes in a full leatherette ninth-plate case. Sadly, no sitter identification is known. An iconic combination of soldier and a loving memento from his heartthrob left home who hoped to see his face on the horizon in 1865!
