Rare original CDV of Horatio Collins King (December 22, 1837 – November 15, 1918) was a Union Army soldier who received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the American Civil War. He also served as a U.S. lawyer, politician and author. Taken by Rockwood, NYC.

I believe the writing on the back reads,

Your “smilinger” HCK

King served in the armies of the Potomac and Shenandoah during the Civil War from August 1862 until May 1865, when he resigned with the rank of brevet colonel, and earned the Medal of Honor for service near Dinwiddie Courthouse, Virginia, on March 31, 1865.

CDV is about 4" x 2.5". Overall in very good or better antique condition with light foxing.
