Full standing CDV of Private Henry Kulp of Company K, 138th Pennsylvania Infantry.

Kulp is posed by a high-backed chair. He wears a dark frock coat with light trousers. His coat is open to reveal a dark shawl collared vest with double-breasted front and what appears to be cloth covered buttons, white shirt and black bowtie.

Image has good clarity and contrast. Paper and mount have light surface dirt. Mount corners have been clipped. Bottom center of image has a small chip in the paper.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for UNION GALLERY…NORRISTOWN, PA. There is also an orange 2 cent tax stamp attached. Reverse has an old pencil ID that reads “HENRY KULP.” There is also some collector information in modern pencil.

Henry Kulp was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania on March 25, 1838. He enlisted as a Private in Company K, 138th Pennsylvania on August 26, 1862.

The 138th was assigned to the 8th Corps of the Middle Department until just after the battle of Gettysburg when it was transferred to the 3rd Corps of the Army of the Potomac and in March of 1864 it was moved to the 6th Corps.

The regiment saw action at Mine Run, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Monocacy, Winchester, Fisher’s Hill and Cedar Creek. During the fight at Cedar Creek Kulp was wounded to an undetermined degree. He was discharged at Washington, D.C. on June 23, 1865.

After his discharge Kulp returned to Montgomery County where he made a living as a farmer. On October 13, 1909, while husking corn in his fields, Kulp was struck with paralysis. He died on October 15, 1909 and is buried in Fernwood Cemetery in Royersford, Pennsylvania.  [ad]
