A Cavalryman and His Lady

A carte de visite by an unidentified photographer, about 1862-1864, pictures a Union cavalryman holding 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.

This image is new to my collection, and available on PinterestTumblr, and Flickr.
