Amazingly, a second tintype of Lyman Aylesworth (1st Rhode Island Cavalry in the US Civil War) has been found; this time on horseback in the field with his saber drawn. This is a fantastic image even without the ID of Aylesworth. The frame is identical to the other tintype in our possession. A dealer had both images together and had sold them separately not knowing they were identified to anyone specifically.
This incredible image will soon be on display at the Varnum Memorial Armory Museum along with his uniform, sword, and other accoutrements.
Thank you, Adam Ochs Fleischer, for getting it to us!
