I don’t have any history for this image taken Peter Kohlbeck, 229 Bowery, NY., but  know him to be a cavalry officer, and most likely from New York.  The CDV has a decent image quality, but when magnified to determine the regiment numeral it gets a bit hazy.  The best I can gather, the number appears to be a “5.”

The young officer’s belt buckle looks to be a two piece eagle plate, of the pre-war militia pattern.  I would have to think the image was taken early in the war.

Nice view, and a good look of the dress during the early stages of the Civil War.
