Carte-de-visite

Vignette of a Federal soldier. Signed on the bottom: "Yours Truly, Thos. S. Langhorn" There was only one soldier in the Civil War named Thomas Langhorn. He was a member Eighteenth Veteran Reserve Corps. This is likely the same soldier, but without a unit designation, it is an educated guess. His jacket could be that of a member of the Reserve Corps, but it is somewhat dark for the Reserve Corps.
