This post-war view produced by the Baltimore photograph company of Kuhn & Cummins is of E. Pendleton Long in left profile wearing a dark civilian suit.

Contrast and clarity are excellent as is the paper and mount. Image is identified in period ink at bottom with “PENDLETON LONG” and again at bottom center of the mount above the photographer’s address.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint with name and address.

E. Pendleton Long enlisted as a private at Woodstock, Virginia on March 24, 1862 in Captain Turner Ashby’s Company A, 7th Virginia Cavalry.

Long’s name appears a roster of prisoners of war dated September 11, 1862 but his place and date of capture is not given. He was paroled at Aiken’s Landing on September 27, 1862 and exchanged there the following November 10.

Records show that Long was wounded in one of the many small actions his unit took part in. This happened on November 1, 1863. He arrived at the hospital in Gordonsville, Virginia on November 3 and then, ten days later on the 13th he was transferred to the CS General Hospital at Charlottesville. From there he was given a 30 day furlough to commence on December 4, 1863 but he was back with his Company by December 31st..

The records relate that Long’s horse was killed at Ream’s Station on August 25, 1864 for which he was paid $1800 and there his record ends. No date of muster out or discharge or parole is given.

Nothing is known of his post-war life other than that he died at “Redwood” near Culpepper, Virginia on July 21, 1889. [ad]  [ph:L]
