FRAMED TIPTON PHOTO OF 88TH PENNSYLVANIA REUNION AT GETTYSBURG

$595.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2022-1713

Image shows approx. 30 to 35 members of the 88th Pennsylvania posed on the edge of an orchard at Gettysburg during one of their reunions.

The men are posed in a line with others seated in the tall grass. Almost all of the veterans wear reunion ribbons and many hold their hats in their hands while several others keep their hats on. Some have bowlers while others have straw hats and a few wear kepis.  One veteran is on crutches. There is a young boy seated among the veterans in the grass and off to the left side of the photo stands their guide, the well-known John B. Batchelder.

The image is marked “TIPTON PHOTO” and though the 88th Pennsylvania is not mentioned, the regimental designation was taken from viewing the reunion ribbons under a microscope.

The contrast and clarity of the image is very good. Actual size of the image is 13.00 x 9.50 inches and it is mounted on a gray card stock. The mount does have water staining along both edges and some at bottom but none of it touches the image. Photo does have some light surface dirt and scattered light foxing.

Frame looks to be the original and meas. 20.00 x 16.00 with a decorative plaster front that has a floral pattern painted gold with an inner border of gold stippling. Frame does exhibit several chips from age and storage.

The 88th Pennsylvania was organized in Wissahickon, Pennsylvania on September 1, 1861. They first served as part of the garrison of Alexandria, Virgnia before becoming part of the Military District of Washington and later in the Department of the Rappahannock. In June of 1862 they were assigned to the 3rd Corps of Pope’s Army of Virginia and served with the 1st Corps of the Army of the Potomac from September of 1862 to March of 1864 when they were transferred to the 5th Corps for the remainder of the war.

The regiment was present at 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna, Cold Harbor, and throughout the Petersburg Campaign.
