Acquired by us many years ago and best described here by our photo illustrations, this ¼ plate tintype and accompanying carte de viste emanated from long stored remnants of the Philadelphia estate of the Rev. Elias Root. Beadle (1812 / 1879). A distinguished Civil War era Presbyterian Minister, he was pastor of the Pearl Street Church in Hartford, CT from 1852 to 1863, Second Presbyterian Church, Walnut St., Philadelphia from 1865 to 1879 and represented the American Board of Missions, as a missionary to Beirut, before service in Albion, NY, and in Rochester, NY. Rev. Beadle served ten years a minister in New Orleans, which in the time of the Civil War caused much distrust of him by most of his fellow Clergy as they embraced Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. Though publicly not of a pro slavery bent, Rev. Beadle, influential as he was, had been and continued to be, of the thought that the troublesome issue of slavery was a political issue. Believing that politics and religion did not mix, he had a rather consistent record of not being an abolitionist. Quite unique among his peers, Beadle was considered on the wrong side of the slavery issue. His ten years’ service in New Orleans with the many continuing ties their only fed popular suspicion as to his allegiances. (see: Onward Christian Soldier: The Life of Rev. E. R. Beadle by Roger Rochlen) This rare ¼ plate tintype offers crisp contrast with sharp focus and remains in excellent condition. The accompanying CDV is back marked DAVIS 245 MAIN STREET HARTFORD CONN. (see: Civil War period Hartford Directories) and remains housed in its period identifying photo album page. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
