Identified by collector Zelda Mackay as "Judge [David S.] Terry, as a boy, who killed Senator Broderick in a duel." However, Judge Terry (1823-1889) was an adult by 1850. Subjects may, perhaps, be members of his family of the next generation. <physfacet label="Image Package Note">Original component parts: plate, mat, cover glass, preserver.
