1/4 plate ambrotype of a Civil War Sergeant Major.
The image is very clear and crisp-- lot of details to discern. Looks like he has a sword-- see the curved scabbard between his leg and the chair. Additionally, the butt of a revolver can be seen poking out of a holster at his waist.
For me the most desirable feature is the visible spur (tinted) on his tipped up boot and the mud on the boots themselves. Straight from the field to the studio!
