Civil War Soldier Tintype Photo, 1864
With Weapon & Original Obituary 




Fantastic Original Civil War photo of Soldier with rifle and bayonet and scenic background.   Great detail of soldier's  dress uniform and Union belt buckle, with just some minor grazing.    Has Rare "George Washington" case.  Case is separated at binder. 

But even more Amazing (which we have NEVER seen before) is the extraordinary provenance in the form of the ORIGINAL Newspaper Obituary of the soldier. 
.   Identified as Charles Bancroft of the 1st Vermont Battery..  Mr Bancroft  died at 17 years old from typhoid..   More Civil War Soldiers died from disease then from battle wounds.    In 39 years collecting we have never seen an Original Civil War photo tintype with the original obituary like this.   The back of the obituary is about civil war deserters and the punishment.    Obit has vintage tape remnants from repair of the 160 year old newspaper clipping.

Full figure with rifle with bayonet, in George Washington embossed case. Soldier identified in newspaper obituary with verse to his grieving mother. Soldier’s name Charles F. Bancroft of Duncan’s 1st Vermont Battalion, age 17 years, 3 months.
