(Be sure to check out my other listing for an additional CDV of this woman, with a note inscribed by her brother during the war. Just search XIV)

Two more original CDVs of a woman, Frances "Frank" Hood (full name, Frances Caroline Hood Corbett), one taken by Alexander Gardner, Washington, D.C., the other, having a hand cancelled Civil War revenue stamp, taken by Fuller of Madison, Wisconsin. The photo by Fuller has handwritten notes and a signature on the back, "From your Loving Sister Frank", "Miss F.C. Hood", beneath that, written by her brother Charles Crook Hood, Jr., "Received Savannah, Ga., Dec 17, 1864.

More info on Hood's Civil War service is available in my other listing, but he was in the XIV Army Corps. On December 17, 1864, he would've been part of the famous Sherman's March to the Sea, and stationed in Georgia.

This Fuller CDV is in good or better antique condition with clipped corners and minor lifting of the image. The Alexander Gardner image is in good antique condition.. the back layer of mount is separating and the bottom 1/4 of the mount is soft, but the image is still complete and in one piece.
