He was a Lieutenant in the 22. NY Cavalry in the Civil War. I actually found some info on the 22.NY Cavalry and a roster with his name (see links below). He is wearing a Union Cavalry officer uniform with the high top boots typical of Civil War cavalry. He is holding a kepi and sword and has a pistol tucked in the top of his boot.
He also appears to have. Pair of binoculars over his shoulder. The back of the photo is A. & commsy (commissary) 22 NYC. The photo has expected age wear but is in VERY NICE condition for its age, no rips, tears or creases.
It comes in a Lucite protective holder. This is a WONDERFUL CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS PHOTO COLLECTIBLE AND A GREAT PIECE OF HISTORY! Enrolled, March 4, 1864, at Rochester; mustered in as first lieutenant and regimental commissary, to date January 29, 1864, to serve three years; \ mustered out with regiment, August 1, 1865, at Winchester, Va. Commissioned first lieutenant and regimental commissary, March 30,1804, with rank from January 29,1864, original.
Please expect wear consistent with age and use. I try to be very detailed and describe as best as possible as well as taking lots of photos. I invite you to ask questions if you need more information or are uncertain of the condition. I will do my best to resolve.
Thank you for visiting and good luck. CIVIL WAR SOLDIER OFFICER CDV PHOTO LT.
