Curtiss Plate

This coffin plate was quite likely kept by the family of Lt. Ambrose B. Curtiss, Co. G of the Fourth Michigan Infantry. Curtiss served as First Sergeant during the Civil War so the rank of Lt. must reflect his subsequent service as a member of the U.S. Army. He served until October of 1870.
