Union Camp at Cedar Creek Battlefield albumen print, showing Camp Sheridan tents of wounded.

A young Union sergeant, possibly a cadet, in frock coat with Hardee hat in hand with Infantry bugle-horn on the front. His collar and cuffs are differently colored.

A real photo postcard of Farragut’s flagship USS Hartford at anchor, with a small schooner nearby. Dated 1903.

A mid-20th century photo of a US frigate, probably the USS Constitution at dock, probably from the 1950’s in Boston, as she doesn’t have sails bent on.

An 1865 dated letter in a patriotic cover, written by Peter P. Winslow from Princeton, New Jersey, asking Mr. James B. Stevens for assistance in collecting Mr. Winslow’s Civil War bounty and honorable discharge. The cover is an eagle tearing down the first Confederate National flag, in front of a proudly displayed American flag, and is dated August. Dimensions: All four items are contained in a large plastic freezer bag. The albumen prints are 8 by 6 inches and 4.5 by 6.5 inches.
