A striking image of a soldier who did not live through the war. Photo is a waist-up view of George P. Hoyt of the 7th New Hampshire Infantry. He is wearing a jacket with a stand-up collar and brass buttons. Image has lightly yellowed with age but is clear with very good contrast.

Oval wooden frame measures 10 ¾” x 12 ¾”. Frame is in very good condition with one small chip. Wire is mounted on reverse for hanging.

George P. Hoyt was a resident of Lebanon, New Hampshire. He enlisted on October 29, 1961 at the age of 19 as a Private and was mustered into Co. “C”, 7th New Hampshire Infantry on November 6, 1861. He died of disease on December 1, 1864 at Laurel Hill, Virginia. Military records state that George died of, “disease heart”.

Reverse of frame has a handwritten inscription that reads, “George Hoyt – Brother of Charlotte Elizabeth Hoyt Storrs”. We printed out census records from 1850 at Lebanon, Grafton, New Hampshire that shows Charlotte at 18 years old and George at 8 years. Eliza lived from 1831-1916.  [sm]
