Description

This outdoor view is most likely taken very early in the war, as these New York infantryman are wearing their militia uniforms and caps with pompoms.  Taken by an Albany photographer, Haines & Wickes, these men probably aren’t too far from that location.

They appear to be armed with conversion muskets fitted with the Maynard Tape Primer system.  A good many of them are sporting their knapsacks.

Nice view and in very good- fine condition.

From the Michael McAfee Collection.
