Image shows George H. Hubbard posed with his arms crossed across his chest leaning against a column where his forage cap rests. He wears a dark double-breasted frock coat with major or lieutenant colonel’s shoulder straps.

Image has good clarity and contrast. Edges of the mount have several areas of dark staining. Bottom of mount has been trimmed.

Reverse is blank except for a faded period ink inscription of “GEO. H. HUBBARD, SURGEON.” There is also light staining on edges and running from top to about halfway down the reverse. None of this affects the image on the opposite side.

George Harris Hubbard was born in Hopkinton, New Hampshire on June 8, 1823. He was residing and practicing medicine in Manchester when he was appointed Surgeon of the 2nd New Hampshire on May 3, 1861. He was with the 2nd at 1st Bull Run but he was discharged for promotion in the U.S. Volunteers Medical Staff on September 30, 1861.

The regimental history of the 2nd says of Hubbard:

“Hubbard reported to Tipton, Missouri where he remained during the winter of 1861-1862 in charge of the hospital in that department. In the summer of 1862 he was ordered to Paducah, Kentucky where he served as Medical Director until the summer of 1864, when he was put in charge of the great military hospital at Troy, New York, where he remained until the close of the war.

After his muster out he returned to private practice in Lansingburg, N.Y. He soon built up a very good practice, and was highly esteemed. Everything was bright and happy until the death of a beautiful daughter. From that day he seemed to lose all interest in life, and died a year or more after his daughter, on the 19th of January, 1876.”

He is buried in Baptist Church Cemetery, Bradford, New Hampshire.  [ld]
