19 hours before the explosion that took just under 1200 lives. The
Sultana was carrying ex-POW's back from southern prisons in
April, 1865. It was designed to carry less than 400 people yet it was
loaded with 2,300 Union POW's heading home to the north.
Seven miles upriver on April 27, 1865 the Sultana would explode,
killing so many that had gone through so much to outlast the
War. Image is in very good condition and rarely seen for sale.

CDV - IDENTIFIED PLANTATION VIEW - No Photographer's
back mark. This is an image with subject matter that few have the
opportunity to obtain. They are rarely offered for sale. This is a
view of a Plantation grounds with over 50 slaves (to my count)
and what looks like perhaps 3 soldiers (one slave appears to be
wearing a kepi). There is a very faint ID in period pencil on the
reverse which looks to be either "Bucland (or Bulland) Plantation
/ 1864". On the 'Additional Images' page I have experimented
with contrast adjustments on the scans to try and draw out better
clarity - you may decide for yourself. There was a well known
North Carolina Plantation known as 'Buckland' but of course
without something better in the image to compare, it is tough to
say for certain.

TINTYPE - WHITE & BLACK(?) WOMEN WITH AN
INTERESTING RELATIONSHIP
- Crisp tintype of the two
women and a strange note in a somewhat ominous tone, behind
the image in the case. The note is dated August, 1861 and it looks
like the image was taken in 1859. In the best of my transcribing it
reads: "Louisa, When shall we meet again? Changes must need
be in that I fear changes unlooked for, dark - sorrowful.
Whatever, wherever I may be live thou true to thy womanhood,
thy friend and thy God / M Alice G / Aug 1861 / Hyde Park
1859". Could this be in reference to the beginning of War,
Friendship between races / is slavery implied? Interesting to say
the least! Unfortunately the case is damaged and cover detached
but the note is fine and image near perfect. More shown in

same view with the same early back mark for $2500. - The buyer then
placed it up for bids and has a high bid of $3000 right now for it. Looking
at that one Heritage has and this one, I think this one is the better of the
two. Looks like the two were taken from different sections of the plate (a
CDV camera often had 4 lenses placing 4 images on the wet plate. With this
process each of the four had just a ever so slightly different angle on the
plate but just enough to tell if you study it). A screamer Lincoln image!

ALBUMEN OF UNKNOWN CAVALRY (?) ALL
HOLDING COLT REVOLVING RIFLES !!!
 - Small
albumen image (mount approx. 4 5/8" x 5 7/8" &
image approx. 3 5/8" x 4 7/8") perhaps of a small
company showing 29 soldiers with 2 NCO's and
clean shots of 20 Colt Revolving Rifles and partial
views of the rest!! On the reverse in pencil is written
"21st Ohio" but serious doubt whether this could be
. Hard to say whether this is a period ID but I have
now reason to doubt it due to the uniforms and the
fact that the 21st Ohio was not a mounted infantry
regiment. The back round is a bit washed out but
looks to be a possible camp in the hills behind
(actually appears to be makeshift horse stables).  Not
the best of condition but content is killer!
