This real photo postcard depicts a black and white image of men inspecting horses. The photograph is taken from behind the horses. They are all lined up in a row and most of the men are standing in between them. Just right of center, a young boy is standing behind a horse and is looking at the camera. Two houses, several tents and tall trees are visible in the background. On the back of the postcard the word [POST CARD] is printed at the top. The words [CORRESPONDENCE HERE] and [NAME AND ADDRESS HERE] divide the back into two sections. Handwritten text on the left reads [This one does nt / require an envelop. / I [illegible] its very / good of the Colored / troops taken while grooming / their horses / Don't you miss me? / I hope Cora is n't so tired / out she can't continue making / good things for you to eat.]. The name [Nellison] is handwritten in the margin. Handwritten text on the right reads [Henry R. Dort / Roxbury St / Keene / N.H.]. The green postage stamp in the top right corner features an image of Benjamin Franklin. At the top center a black stamp reads [WINCHENDON / OCT 2 / 7- AM / 10 09 / MASS.].
