A Cavalryman and His Lady

viper-gallery

A Union cavalryman holds the bridle of a horse, upon which a lady is seated sidesaddle. Dirt roads leading to a building with a cupola and another structure are visible in the background. The trees are covered in leaves, which suggests this photograph was taken in the summer. Carte de visite by unidentified photographer, about 1862-1864.
