Image placed on CDV mount, might be from a stereoview, taken at Yorktown, Va.
Mike McAfee made notes on the back of this image, “probably a stereocard print remounted to carte by person unknown.” This photo is identical to that used in Brady’s Album Gallery (No. 455), Exploded Gun in Confederate Battery, Yorktown.
The troops within the gun emplacement are the 1st New York (Independent Battalion). The Zouave uniforms are evident here, amongst the mangled cannon, and canister lying about. A Light artillery camp is in the background.
Clean and clear, very good condition.
