A 6th Plate Tintype of George T. Thompson, Company F, 92nd Illinois Mounted Infantry. the image does have a couple light scratches as can be seen in the images. He sits in a chair with his musket w/ bayonet fixed in the crook of his arm and a Colt Pocket across his chest. You can see that the Eagle breastplate and US belt buckle have been gilted. The image is a shade dark - but not bad. The case that the image was in was very badly damaged, so I put the main image in another case to protect it - the original lid that came with the I kept, as when you remove the pillow, it has the identification in it. This image comes out of a long time collection of Wilder's Brigade memorabilia and this was one of the 92nd pieces that was in it.
George Thompson enlisted at the age of 20 years old on August of 1862 and was from Ridott, Illinois. He is listed as being killed in action on October 11th, 1863 at Danville, Kentucky.
