Major General George W. Getty and Sixth Army Corps Staff CDV Portrait

CDV of Brevet Major General George Getty and members of his Sixth Army Corps. Eleven men presented in the group portrait, each with a handwritten identification number that corresponds to a name, in most cases. Bottom row, L to R: 1st Lt. John H. Macomber, 1st VT Heavy Artillery; unknown; Captain George W. Bonett, 3rd VT Volunteers; Captain Penrose G. Mark, 93rd PA Volunteers. Middle Row, L to R: unknown; Brevet Colonel Charles Mundee, assistant adjutant-general; Brevet Major General George W. Getty; Colonel Hazard Stevens, assistant adjutant-general. Top row, L to R: all unknown. George Washington Getty (1819-1901) graduated from West Point in 1840 and served extensively in the pre-war Army, including ample participation in the Mexican and Seminole Wars, and even the troubles in Kansas. As the Civil War broke out, Getty was commissioned into the US 5th Light Artillery and commanded the regiment in engagements near Budd's Ferry in winter of that year. The following year, Getty commanded four batteries at Yorktown, Gaines' Mill, and Malvern Hill, and engaged at South Mountain and Antietam. He was then commissioned into the US Volunteers General Staff as a brigadier general on September 25, 1862, in which capacity he participated in the Rappahannock Campaign, engaged at Fredericksburg and in the defense of Suffolk. During the course of the war, he was consistently promoted, reaching the rank of lieutenant colonel in April of 1863, and being brevetted numerous times for his gallantry at the Battle of the Wilderness (where he was severely wounded), and his service at the Battles of Petersburg, Fisher's Hill, and Winchester. Nearly a year after the war ended, in July of 1866, Getty became Colonel of the 37th Infantry, commanding an array of districts and posts until his ultimate retirement from active service in October of 1883. Hazard Stevens (1842-1918) enlisted as a 1st lieutenant and was commissioned into Field and Staff, NY 79th Infantry on August 1, 1861. The following month, he was commissioned into US Volunteers Adjutant General Department. He later received the Medal of Honor for action at Nansemond River, VA on April 19, 1863, when he led an assault across the river to capture enemy arms.閱讀更多

Officers of the 38th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, Spectacular Half

Anonymous, half plate tintype featuring officers and enlisted men of the 38th Indiana Infantry, taken around Murfreesboro, TN in April of 1863, while the 38th was encamped there following the Battle of Stones River. This spectacular outdoor image shows the men gathered around an open tent, with a captain's desk figuring prominently in the scene. Image housed in a full pressed paper case, fully separated at spine. Accompanying period label with embossed maker's mark identifies all of the subjects, including Captain George Windell of Co. K, Captain William Leneau of Co. B, and Lieutenant James Low of Co. D. At the time this image was made, it is likely that Low had recently returned to the regiment after recovering from a serious head would received at Stones River. Low eventually took command of the 38th, but was killed at the Battle of Bentonville, NC, before the official commission and subsequent promotion was received. Additional paperwork included with lot provides more detailed biographical information of each subject, referencing official reports, company histories, and post-war memoirs. The 38th Indiana saw extensive service in the western theater of the war, participating in over a dozen battles including Perryville, Stones River, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Resaca, Kennesaw Mountain, Sherman's march, and Bentonville. The regiment suffered heavy casualties during the conflict, losing over 400 men to combat and disease before mustering out of service in July of 1865. This photograph was published in Shadows of the Storm: Volume One of The Image of War 1861-1865, edited by William C. Davis and published by Doubleday & Company Inc., Garden City, NY, 1981 (p. 340). A fine image.閱讀更多
