Image is looking up a Company street that is lined with Sibley tents on each side with a row of officer’s tents visible running at a right angle at the end of the street. Three separate groups of soldiers can be seen sitting in the Company street. Nearest the camera are a group of NCO’s playing cards while the next group is two Privates playing chess or checkers with the group furthest from the camera showing assorted soldiers reading letters or writing. Several other soldiers can be seen standing around the tents while two soldiers in the left foreground are near a clothes line with clothes hanging out to dry. In the far background is a row of trees and a courthouse spire showing that the camp is just outside of a town.

Image is clear with excellent contrast. There is a very faint bend running through the right side of the image. This can only be discerned if the light hits the image just right.

Framed the item meas. approx. 13.75 x 11.50 inches. The frame is made of gold painted wood and is modern. Image is double matted with a cream-colored mat over another of gray. Actual image size is 7.00 x 5.00 inches. Frame and mat are excellent.

The backing of the frame has “13th CONN.” written in modern pencil. The same is written on the reverse of the image itself. The image is similar to a period lithograph showing the 13th’s camp at Thibodeaux, Louisiana.

The 13th Connecticut was organized on November 11, 1861 and was assigned to the Department of the Gulf and later served with the 19th and 10th Corps. The regiment was engaged in numerous actions in Louisiana with some of the larger being Irish Bend and Port Hudson. The regiment moved with the 19th Corps to Virginia in 1864 and was engaged at Winchester, Fisher’s Hill and Cedar Creek.

During its service the regiment lost 5 officers and 199 enlisted men killed, died of wounds and disease plus many others wounded but survived.  [ad]
