Charles Fisher, KIA at Chapin’s Farm, VA.  The left image is an embossed illustration of the GAR badge.  Bottom center is a picture of the surviving members of Company C at an 1886 GAR Reunion encampment.

The back of the frame shows signs of wear.  The paneling that holds the image in place is wood and in OK condition.

Company C of the 115th was known as the “Iron Hearted Regiment” for their valiant efforts in the battles of Petersburg, Cold Harbor, Fort Fisher, and Chickahominy. They were mostly from Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery, and Saratoga counties in New York and mustered into the army from Fonda, NY.  Their first engagement was at the battle of Harpers Ferry, September of 1862, where they surrendered and moved to Chicago to await parole.  From Chicago they served in various locations in Hilton Head and Beaufort, SC. They were in the battle of Olustee, FL and endured the loss of 300 men including 2nd Lt Tompkins who is pictured on the framed memorandum.  In April of 1864 they joined the 10th Corps at the Fortress Monroe with General Butler and the Army of the James.  Upon becoming apart of the Army of the James their mission was to attack Richmond from the east and south while the Army of the Potomac approached from the north.  The 115th also partook in the battles of Cold Harbor and the capture of Fort Fisher.  The unit was mustered out of service on June 17, 1865 in Raleigh, NC under Col. Nathan Johnson.  [MK]
