Armed soldier tintype. A  1/4 plate tintype of a fierce
 looking lad holding what appears to be a Remington
 pistol in one hand and a sword with the scabbard 
and belt in the other hand. The cap with tassle
 and light color pant lead me to believe he is a Zouave.
 Looking close he has at least one black eye!
 A very desirable subject in a full case.

Officers Escusion.  A large 18" x 22" war record for
DR  James H. Waterman, Surgeon, commissioned 
into the 46th Mass Infantry serving from

to the regimental history  at the start of July 1863 
parts of the  46th were  ordered to the Baltimore
area in response to Lees invasion of Pennsylvania. 
Being a Surgeon, Dr Waterman most likely was sent
with that detail to assist in attending to the many                     
casualty's of the Gettysburg battle.
​ Their is a light water  stain along the top edge that 
does not affect the graphics. It is still bright and 
attractive, house in its original quarter sawn oak 
frame that has been cleaned and refinished.
Comes with his service and pension records from
 the national Archives.  Waterman died of services 
related disabilities at the age 52 in 1887
.This piece deserves additional research
