Union soldier and woman tintype   Save
Antique Photography Collection
Description: Tintype portrait of an unidentified Union soldier and young woman that was found on the battlefield of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was found by John E. Ramsey of the 1st Ohio Light Artillery, Battery H, in the rear of Cemetery Hill, immediately after a heavy artillery duel. Tintype is bent and scratched. An oval-shaped line around the man and woman indicates that the portrait may have been framed in an oval mat at one time. The tintype itself measures 8 x 7 cm, and is mounted on a board with a typed description that measures 11.5 x 7.5 cm. This photograph was included in "Over Here, Over There," an exhibit that opened at the Ohio History Center on July 1, 2011. View on Ohio Memory.
