This photograph was part of a collection of images of men from Company G, 1st Massachusetts Heavy Artillery. The regiment was originally raised as the 14th Massachusetts Infantry on July 5, 1861. In January of 1862 the regiment was reorganized as heavy artillery and assigned to the defenses of Washington DC. In 1863 various companies were moved to different temporary assignments while most of the regiment remained in the Washington forts. In May of 1864 the whole regiment was assigned as infantry to the 2nd Corps in the Army of the Potomac for Grant’s Overland Campaign. Their first taste of heavy fighting was during the final phase of the Battle of Spotsylvania.

This image is a 1/6 plate tintype of Albert H. Kent. He enlisted on July 26, 1862, was transferred to the 1st Independent Company of Veteran Reserve Corps on September 30, 1863, and was mustered out of service on March 16, 1866. In the image Kent is seated. He wears his frock coat, kepi, and accoutrement belt. The cross cannons insignia is clearly visible on his kepi. The image is clear. An ornate copper mat surrounds the image. A paper identification is on the back. In pencil, it reads, “Albert H. Kent”.  The image is enclosed in a lucite cdv holder and comes with an engraved brass label from a previous collector’s display.   [jet]
