Nice, sharp negative you had to work with. And you've added just the right touches with your magic touch.

I found the following information from Wikipedia both interesting and informative:

United States Volunteers also known as U.S. Volunteers, U. S. Vol., or U.S.V. were military volunteers enlisted in the United States Army who were separate from both the Regular Army and the militia. Though volunteer units operated before 1812, starting in 1861 they were often referred to as the Volunteer Army of the United States but not officially so named (codified into law) until 1898. During the 19th century the U.S. Volunteers were the United States government's main way for raising large forces of citizen soldiers needed in wartime to augment the Regular Army and militias. The U.S. Volunteers were the forerunner of the National Army in World War I and the Army of the United States in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

The U.S. Volunteers did not exist in times of peace. Unlike the militia, which, under the United States Constitution, each state recruited, trained, equipped, and maintained locally, with regimental officers appointed and promoted by state governors and not kept in federal service for more than nine months nor sent outside the country, the U.S. Volunteers were enlisted for terms of one to three years, and between 1794 and 1902 fought outside the country.

Another great colorization that sent me on a quest to know more Rob. You have a way of doing that to us. Superior work once again.

Rob, I like to say thanks to Tick for providing us with this interesting information above. This goes along by the by you always perfectly done colorization. Both are very helpful to bring the original and almost forgotten B&W photograph in an even better perspective. Thank you for keeping this time document from being forgotten.

I agree with Ron, "superior work once again". On this particular colorization I was greatly impressed by the subtle colors, and was very surprised that even though the colors are subtle, they give you a clean and dramatic vision of this person. Excellent result.
