OUTDOOR CDV OF THE CAMP OF THE ANDERSON TROOP OF PENNSYLVANIA CAVALRY AT CARLISLE PA

$500.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 945-66

Along the left edge of the image several companies can be seen standing in a formation called "a column of companies." Towards the center of the image another company can be seen forming into line on the edge of their camp and are probably about to join the formation seen at left. Numerous rows of "A" tents can be seen pitched in an open field at right. In the background can also be seen the tall spire of a church and several buildings which constitute the skyline of Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

The contrast of the image is a bit light but all details can be made out. Mount corners have been trimmed and rounded. There is a faint pencil inscription along the top edge but it is not clear enough to be read. Image and mount also have some light surface dirt.

Reverse has no photographer's imprint but does have a faint period pencil inscription that reads "ENCAMPMENT OF ANDERSON CAV. CAMP ALABAMA NEAR CARLISLE, PA. OCT. 14, 1862" Near the bottom is another faint pencil inscription with collectors’ information.

We have offered a similar image of this same camp from the collection of Medal of Honor recipient W. W. Blackmar as item number 945-67. These images came together but this view does not bear Blackmar's initials as the other one does.

Nice outdoor camp scene.

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]
