Straight on vignette bust view of Howard King of Company B & I 4th New Jersey Infantry. King wears a dark frockcoat with 2nd lieutenants shoulder straps.

Image has good clarity and contrast. Paper and mount have light surface dirt. Bottom middle of the mount has a spot of foxing and the bottom corners of the mount have been trimmed.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for H. MANGER & CO’s… PHILSDELPHIA. Along one edge is an old ink ID of “HOWARD KING” and across the top in modern pencil is “4th N.J.” ID is confirmed by other online images.

Howard King enlisted as a sergeant in Company B, 4th New Jersey Infantry for three months service on April 27, 1861. After a quiet three months of guarding railroads he was mustered out at Trenton, New Jersey on July 31, 1861.

Upon reforming the regiment King was given a commission as 2nd lieutenant of Company I on August 17, 1861. He was transferred to Company H after being promoted to 1st lieutenant on October 31, 1862 and was finally made captain of Company C on April 1, 1863. King was mustered out at the expiration of his term of service on September 3, 1864.

While King was with the 4th it saw service with the 1st and 6th Corps of the Army of the Potomac at Gaines’ Mill, 2nd Bull Run, South Mountain, Fredericksburg, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna, Cold Harbor, Petersburg and Winchester.  [ad]
