A pocket-sized photo album containing four albumen prints and fourteen tintypes of seventeen African American Union soldiers from the 25th Regiment, United States Colored Troops (USCT), Company G. One soldier, James Tall, is represented twice. All but one of the men has been identified. The names of the soldiers are written in black ink beneath their photographs. The front pastedown endpaper has “Tin Type Album” and “113” printed on it in gold colored ink. The number is inside a diamond shape. It is also bordered with a wavy gold colored line. The photographs are oriented differently from the printed text on the endpaper. The photographs are in pages with oval cutouts. Two gold colored patterned designs border the cutouts. There are six blank pages (three leaves) at the end of the photograph album. The photograph album has part of a metal latch on the front cover.
