This is a beautiful Civil War era CDV Photo. Columbus has "hat hair", as in we believ he just came out fo the fields or off his buggy to have his photo take, can see the line of his hair in his long locks. A beautiful rare piece with much genealogy info. Just as a note, "Lum" is also a nickname for Columbus.
