An officer of the 35th Iowa Volunteer Infantry.
A great looking shot of a seated Lt. Isaac B. Sloan in his sack coat, sword , sash and belt, and slouch hat. His gauntleted hand grips the sword hilt at his side. There is no photographer back mark, but a period ink inscription reads simply, “Lieut. Sloan. Other known photos including this image verify his identity. The signature looks very close to that on another image found on the Civil War Date site.
Sloan enlisted in July of 1862 as a 3rd Sergeant of Co. A., 35th Iowa Infantry, and mustered out on Aug. 10, 1865 back in Davenport, Iowa. He had made appointments and commissions from 3rd, 2nd and 1st Sgt, and 1st Lieutenant and Captain.
The 35th Iowa served in the western theater of the war, assigned to three of the major commands in that theater, the Dept. of the Tennessee, Army of the Cumberland, and the Dept. of the Gulf. They had several engagements.
In very good condition. Have copied research data for this soldier.
