Carte de Visite of a Female Civil War Soldier

Carte de Visite of a Female Civil War Soldier

150.00

This is a wonderful CDV photograph of Sallie Miller, wearing a shell jacket. I was told that she was one of many female Civil War soldiers who enlisted as men to follow their husbands and lovers to war. I don't have any documentation that authenticates this claim other than what appears in the photograph, but it is certainly one of my favorite photographs. The backstamp identifies the photographer as J. A, Finkbinder from Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.
