Scarce cdv photograph of a Civil War Soldier from the 1st Maine Battalion Light Infantry. This was a Scottish Infantry according to Maine records. This soldier is dressed in full garb and certainly decked out for the photographer. One can see he has blazing red hair and is also armed. Portrait was taken by George M.Howe of 112 Middle Street in Portland.
I would imagine that there is a strong possibility this photo is the only one that exist from this unit.
