The subject of this image is Osmond T. Baker of Company H, 12th New Hampshire Infantry. This vignette view shows Baker wearing a dark sack coat buttoned at the throat only.

Image is clear with very good contrast. Top of mount is trimmed.

Reverse has a period ink ID that reads “O. T. BAKER / Co. H. 12. N.H.VOLS.” Photographer’s imprint is for LADD & CO… Laconia, N. H.

Osmond T. Baker was 19 years old and living in Holderness, N.H. when he enlisted as a Private in Company H. He was promoted to Corporal on September 1, 1864 and Sergeant on January 1, 1865. He was mustered out at Richmond, Va. on June 21, 1865.

Not much is known about his post-war life other than that he died on December 4, 1918 and is buried in the Montana Veterans Home Cemetery, Columbia Falls, Montana.

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]
