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 William L. Full. He enlisted on August 4, 1862 and was mustered out of service on July 8, 1864. In the image Full is standing with his hand poised on a side table. He wears his frock coat and kepi and has a pipe in his mouth. The buttons, insignia, and fringe on the table cloth are gilted. His trousers are tinted blue. The image is clear.  An ornate copper mat surrounds the image. Covered in glass and all pieces held together with a typical copper border/frame and housed in half of an ordinary hard image case.  A paper identification is found behind the image. In pen & ink it reads, “William L. Full / Co. G.” His name and “Co. G” are also found on the back side of the tin image.   [jet]
