Carte-de-visite

Full portrait of Federal Captain William Wallace by Macpherson & Oliver of New Orleans. Wallace is wearing long hair and a long beard. He is holding (a piece of cloth? or perhaps a keepsake of somekind) in his left hand which is at his side and has his right elbow resting on a studio pedestal. His frock coat is unbuttoned at the center, probably because he had just posed in a Napoleonic stance. Dark foxing on the back side of image.
