1/6 Tintype of a soldier I.D'd as James F. Powers from Marlow, NH. Powers enlisted at the age of 18 on 9/1/1862. He was mustered out on 7/8/1865 at Savannah, GA. He didn't see much action until 1864 and then he fought
at Winchester, VA; Opequan, VA; Fisher's Hill, VA; New Market, VA; and Cedar Creek, VA. He was born in Athens, VT and died on 7/19/1866 in Marlow, NH. The records don't indicate that he was injured, but one has to wonder why
he died so quickly after his discharge. Possibly from an injury or disease aquirred while in service. This image is crystal clear. Powers sits in front of a backdrop that shows the interior of a fort. Note the cannon to his right
and the log palisade to his right. Powers wears a frock coat and the image has some tinting on his cheeks and green tinting on the tree. The image comes in a 1/2 case. #4909=$325.00
