    Incredible 6th Plate Tintype of Private Kenneth A. ("K.A.") McIntosh, Company K, 6th Tennessee Infantry, C.S.A. Nineteen-year old Kenneth lived on a farm outside Brownsville, Tennessee when the War came. He Enlisted in Captain John Ingram's Company, which became K of the 6th Tennessee, a unit that was purportedly well-drilled and, if McIntosh's portrait is indicative, also smartly uniformed: he sports a gray frock coat with pale blue cuff and collar facings, and is armed in addition to his musket, with a large Model 1851 Colt Navy revolver. The 6th Tennessee saw its first actin at Shiloh, on the morning of April 6, 1862, it charged across open ground against a Union battery, and took fire from its side and rear from federal infantry concealed in a woodlot. Within a few minutes, it suffered some 250 casualties, including Private McIntosh, who was wounded in the back and hip. He returned home to recuperate and, although he remained on the Regiment's muster rolls until 1863, he never returned. After the war, he married Bettie DeMent and moved to Arkansas, where he became the "leading physician" of the town of Bebe. He died there on September 23, 1900, according to his family of "blood posioning" contracted during an operation. Bettie lived until 1952, and is buried with her husband in Beebe Cemetery, Beebe, Arkansas. This image was sold in 2005 by a dealer who had obtained it directly from the family. There is no writing in the case, but the image came with correspondence between Bettie and one of K.A.'s regimental comrades, Sgt. W.L. Utley, who wrote to her that he "recollect[ed] well" her husband, and another comrade had seen him after the war walking in boots with a "high cork heel" from the effects of his Shiloh wounding. Other family documents describe him being "shot between the shoulders and hip disocated [sic]."
