For those of you who cruise the LOC collection looking at photos please help me out. I am looking for two CDV's that I believe are part of the collection however, genuis that I am when I saved them years ago I did not record the LOC #'s so finding them after my 6 year old accidently deleted my "Original Photos" folder will take an act of God.
1: showed in profile a Union Cavalryman thought to have been an Iowa Cav troop in the spring of 1865. He was sitting on his horse w/ a Sharps carbine in hand. No sword, standard inf brogans instead of boots and plain unadorned Sack Coat instead of shell jacket, and the standard kit of a US Cav trooper circa 1861-65.
2: An officer (company grade) sitting on the side of the road using his knapsack as a writing desk, no pistol, no sword w/ his company's arms stacked behind him and his company spread out on the hill there obviously at rest. The forefront of the photo was a mobile telegraph station at work. THought to have been an unknown unit of the AoT (US).
THese are two of my favorite photos of the period and they're gone; so if ANY of you manage to stumble across either I would be eternaly in debt... might give you my daughter. She is cute and housebroke... just don't let her near the computer.
You know you wouldn't give that cutie away for any amount of money or pictures. Will start searching . I found the picture for JDC last year. Hopefully I will run across the two you are looking for. One of us here has got to know these pictures
