A black-and-white photograph of an unidentified, highly decorated Buffalo soldier in uniform. The man is wearing a belted uniform and a cap with insignia, and he has ribbons pinned to his chest. He is standing and looking straight at the camera, his right arm resting on a wooden bench, and his right leg slightly bent. Behind the man is a photography studio backdrop showing a nature scene with tall trees. The proper left upper and lower corners of the tintype are trimmed.
