This is a nice ID'd Confederate 1/8th plate (CDV size) tintype of Jabez M. Booker of the 9th Georgia, and also the Georgia Sumpter Light Artillery. Booker is armed with a musket and a M1855 Colt Root in his belt with roller buckle. You can see his cap box. On 6-11-1861 he mustered into A company of the GA 9th Infantry. He died on 9-30-1861 at the 24th Va Hospital in Virginia. The image is clear, and does have some emulsion issues mostly in the background which appear stable. Really a great looking ID'd double armed image.

The "midi" song playing is "Canon in D" by the German composer Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706). It was written about 1680. You may have heard it as the theme from the movies "Ordinary People", and "Father of the Bride". It is popular at weddings, and was played at Princess Diana's funeral.
