Nice chest-up view of Private Samuel E. Wampler of the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry. Wampler is shown wearing the dark double-piped shell jacket that is peculiar to his regiment. His jacket is open to reveal a matching vest and long necktie that is tucked into his vest. Bottom of image has a worn but readable period ink signature that reads “YOURS TRULY, S. E. WAMPLER.”

Contrast and clarity is good. Paper and mount are clean with just a small bit of surface dirt from age along the edges.

Reverse has photographer’s imprint for MORSE’S GALLERY OF THE CUMBERLAND…NASHVILLE, TENN. There is also a 3 cent tax stamp at bottom.

Samuel Wampler enlisted as a Private in Company E, on August 22, 1862. On some unknown date he was transferred to Company I and was mustered out with his regiment on June 21, 1865.

After the war he lived in Bendersville, Pennsylvania just north of Gettysburg where he served as Justice of the Peace and was an active member of the Sergeant T. F. Elden Post #507 of the GAR.

Samuel Wampler died in Bendersville on November 30, 1901 and is buried there in Bendersville, Cemetery. He left behind a widow and twelve children.
