Vignette view of George H. Blake wearing a dark sack coat and matching military vest open to reveal a light shirt.

Image is clear but contrast is a little light. Bold period ink signature at bottom reads “GEORGE H. BLAKE.” Top and bottom of mount has been trimmed. The bottom trim has mostly obliterated “CO. K 12TH N.H. VOLS.”

Reverse is blank except for collector information in pencil.

George H. Blake was 20 years old when he enlisted as a Private in Company K of the 12th New Hampshire Infantry on August 12, 1862. On June 15, 1863 he was detached to serve as a Teamster in the supply train. He was mustered out at Richmond, Va. on June 21, 1865.

The 12th New Hampshire was assigned to the 3rd Corps of the Army of the Potomac where it saw its first action at Fredericksburg.

The regiment suffered heavily at Chancellorsville on May 3, 1863 and at Gettysburg where the regiment defended the area around the Klingle farm along the Emmitsburg Road suffering 17 killed, 68 wounded, 3 captured and 18 missing.

In December of 1863 the 12th was transferred to the 18th Corps and saw action at Williamsburg, Swift Creek, Drewry’s Bluff, Fort Stevens, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. [ad]
