Original CDV of a young soldier identified on the back. Name is really hard to make out, I think it's Absevan followed by what I assume is a last name but it could be nickname, city, who knows.

This is another CDV that was originally in an album with several other ID'd Ohio Infantry soldiers, so I am almost certain he was with the Ohio Infantry as well, but am unsure of the regiment.

I did find the following record, though, and because it's Ohio and the first name is so unusual, it might be the same kid:

Absevan Landborg
Enlistment Age: 24
Birth Date: abt 1837
Enlistment Date: 10 Jul 1861
Enlistment Rank: Corporal
Muster Date: 16 Jul 1861
Muster Place: Ohio
Muster Company: I
Muster Regiment: 28th Infantry

Other possibilities:
Griffith, Absolem, 146th Regiment, Ohio Infantry (National Guard)
Hoffman, Absolem G., 3rd Regiment, Ohio Infantry

4" x 2.5". Good or very good antique condition with some foxing.
