13th New York Infantry State Militia

Picture 2 of 18

Found in an antique shop in 2009 is this sixth plate ambrotype of an unidentified Federal soldier. Most likely taken sometime in the early part of 1861 he is believed to be a member of Co. F, 13th New York Infantry State Militia. Dressed in a grey uniform the jacket is trimmed in black cord with a scalloped cuff design and a small slash pocket located on the lower right side. The uniform is most likely based on that of the famed 7th New York whose grey uniforms became widely popular. Several units adopted a uniform similar to that of the 7th each adding their own variations. The 13th mustered for a 3-month term and served as infantry in Annapolis and Baltimore before mustering out August 6th of 1861. Image Copyright Matthew Fleming.
