This ambrotype recently sold at an HA auction. They are probably Tennessee brothers or relatives, obviously very young. They each hold a M1816/22 musket. These kind of images were very typical as young men and boys enlisted and went off to fight in the Civil War. I wish we knew their names so we could better understand their story. Did they fight at Franklin? Nashville? Chattanooga? Chickamauga? Tullahoma? We will never know.
