c. 1876 Mathew B. Brady Mammoth Size Photograph of an Indian Wars Era Impressive Company of 100 Posed Soldiers

c. 1876 Indian Wars Period, Mathew B. Brady, Signed in Plate, Original 13.75" x 21.25" mounted Photograph of a Company of about 100 Uniformed Soldiers, Fine.

Photograph measures a large 13.75" x 21.25", mounted on a 16" x 23.5" matboard backing. The name "Brady" appears as part of the photographic plate in the lower right corner. There are two one-inch tears to the left edge of the photograph and a six-inch tear across the upper left portion, taped on the back. In addition, the broken lower right corner is repaired with masking tape--these flaws could be compensated with proper matting and framing, as the image itself is quite nice. This unlabeled and undated photograph, taken probably 25 years after the Civil War, features about 100 Uniformed Soldiers with weapons, standing at rest, and three officers and a civilian in the center. The group is posed in front of what appears to be a government building, perhaps in Washington, D.C., where Brady had a studio. The initials "F. C. L." have been penciled in at the bottom with a line pointing to the officer in the front row (probably a Captain), likely these are his initials and with some research his identity might be discovered. A few faces in the back row have been inked out as they were apparently just bystanders.
