Stereo view is of Battery #4 at Yorktown which was manned by large 13-inch mortars of the 1st Connecticut Heavy Artillery. Some of the officers of the regiment are visible among the mortars in the background. The officer leaning against the massive mortar closest to the camera is 1st Lieutenant Elijah Gibbons. Gibbons would later serve as captain of Company B, 14th Connecticut Infantry and would die of wounds received in action at Fredericksburg.

The image is clear with good contrast. Yellow mount and paper show light surface dirt throughout. Bottom of mount has 1862 publication date.
