Item Code: 945-120

Vignette bust view CDV of Edward Sellers wearing a commercial sack coat with Captains shoulder straps.

Image has excellent clarity and contrast. Bottom of image is signed in period ink "YOURS TRULY  EDWARD SELLERS." Signature looks as if Sellers did not have enough ink on his pen when he signed the image. It is readable but a bit spotty. Mount is clean and nice.

Reverse has collectors information in pencil at top and a photographers imprint for F. GUTEKUNST... PHILADELPHIA.

Edward Sellers enlisted as 1st Sergeant in the 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry on August 22, 1862 and was promoted to Sergeant-Major on March 1, 1863. A few months later on May 8, 1863 he received a commission as Captain of Company H. He resigned on March 6, 1865.

The 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry was organized in October of 1862 and was assigned to the Army of the Cumberland. The regiment saw action at Stones River, Mossy Creek and several smaller skirmishes.

During its service the regiment lost 128 officers and men killed, died of wounds and disease plus many others wounded.  [ad]
