An unidentified chaplain of a Massachusetts regiment (most likely) wearing his pattern Chaplain’s sword at his side.
Not a commonly seen image of a chaplain wearing his sword for this nice quality image taken by John A. Heard, Boston. This chaplain is wearing his regulation uniform, with forage cap and infantry horn insignia, but I am not certain of the number of his infantry regiment.
The studio is set up almost exactly as in the listing for the Reverend John Pierpont on this site. Purchase together with Pierpont’s image and both coming from the Mike McAfee Collection.
A great view.
