The subject is Willie Harvey and it is dated 1859 and has him as 13 years 4 months. The image is ID’d in a period tag nicely on the reverse. Both images are 1/4 plate ambrotypes and show him with two different poses. One is with a short sword and the other with a rifle. I feel it is quite likely that he did have civil war service as well. Please check out my other auctions. I was asked why I thought the subjects were Delaware Military Academy. The reason I stated this is in both images DMA can clearly be seen on the hat. I had a friend of mine point out that this is William Harvey of the 2nd Delaware Infantry. So he did have Civil War service as well.
