BUST VIEW OF 46TH PENNSYLVANIA SOLDIER WITH PERIOD INK INSCRIPTION

$100.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2020-843

CDV is of a young cleanshaven soldier wearing a dark sack coat with a circular ID disk on his left chest.

Image has excellent clarity and contrast. Paper has light surface dirt. Upper mount corners are clipped.

Reverse has a period ink inscription of “J. B. H. CO. C 46 PA. VET. VOL. 20 A. C.”

A roster of Company C, of the 46th Pennsylvania listed two men with the initials “J” and “H.” One is listed as Joseph Herrick and the other as John Holl. Neither man used a middle initial on the roster. Searching various other records we find that Joseph Herrick’s middle initial was “B.” All records searched did not show any middle initial for John Holl. Therefore, it is most likely the image is of John Herrick. However, since we cannot be sure, what is known about each man will be given.

Joseph Bird Herrick was born in Mercer County, Pennsylvania in 1841. He enlisted as a private in Company C, 46th Pennsylvania Infantry on September 6, 1863 and was transferred to the VRC on January 1, 1865. Herrick was mustered out on May 22, 1865. He died in Jamestown, Pennsylvania and is buried there in Park Lawn Cemetery.

John Holl enlisted as a private in Company C, 46th Pennsylvania on February 26, 1864 and was transferred to the VRC on July 7, 1865. His date and method of discharge is not listed in the record.  [ad]
