Civil War Grouping of Two Brothers from the 10th Wisconsin Infantry

This grouping contains two 1/6 plate tin type photographs depicting a pair of brothers that were members of the 10th Wisconsin Infantry armed with full equipment. One of the tin types is of Lorenzo H. Dow and has some flaking on the picture. Inside the case is a notation “Loren’s hair taken in camp…, April 4th 1862” and it contains a lock of his hair. The other tin type is of William P. Dow and the case also contains his hair but does not bear any notation. The last piece is a letter from Camp Abercrombie in Shepherdsmille, Kentucky written by William to his sister informing her that Lorenzo was ill and that he was trying to get him out of camp and see to his care.
