On offer is an original, historic and significant group of six [6] Civil War Carte de Visite [CDVs] circa May of 1864 in Decatur Alabama. The images, outdoor scenes, four apparently unknown, two of these images are in the noted Blue and Gray Civil War Museum in Decatur Alabama make for a super visual record of the difficult times and upheaval of conflict and culture in Alabama during the War. The six CDVs in this collection include; the Pontoon Bridge at Decatur faintly inscribed; the building of breastworks; image of stacked rifles [this same image is noted in the Decatur Daily News September 7, 2007 and is inscribed "Fatigue Party of the 10th Iowa, Decatur" likely with the 102nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry and were at the Battle of Decatur and with USS General Grant who patrolled the Tennessee River and took part in the Battle of Decatur]; two street scenes likely Decatur; a photo of recently freed slaves called "Contrabands" during the Civil War presented in a procession of the recently freed Slaves. [The word "Contrabands" is inscribed faintly. Rather unique image given most known images of Contrabands show them settled in a camp and not in flight.] Overall G+.
