This is an unusual image that depicts one family's tragic loss in the American Civil War.
Two children have been photographed flanking their father's bummers cap. The metal "hunting horn" insignia (Infantry) has been gold tinted.
I wish I knew an ID on the children or father.
Image is a Sixth plate tintype that is currently uncased. The image does show that it was cased at one time as the matting has left its mark on the image surface.

Thanks for looking.
