RARE IMAGE OF BLACK SOLDIERS BEFORE THE BATTLE OF YORKTOWN (SLAVERY AND ABOLITION--PHOTOGRAPHY.) Group of Contrabands in front of Allen's Farmhouse near Williamsburg Road (supplied title.) Carte-de-visite showing black soldiers standing next to recently freed slaves on wash day. Barnard & Gibson for Brady. With the Brady Gallery label on reverse.
A superb example of this photo, clearly showing several black soldiers in uniform standing with ex-slave "contrabands" doing wash in front of a farm house that is identified as the Allen farm by the Virginia State website. The website shows another image taken the same day.
