View is of a stone obelisk with crossed flags and a five-pointed star on the front surrounded by an iron fence in front of a farmhouse. Several men, two of which are mounted, are gathered around between the monument and the house.

The photo is by Rogers & Haffner of Chambersburg, Pa and is so marked on the bottom of the mount. Image has excellent clarity and contrast and looks to date from the 1890’s.

The reverse has text which relates how the obelisk was erected on the site where Corporal William H. Rihl of Company C, 1st New York “LINCOLN” Cavalry was killed on June 22, 1863 in a skirmish with Confederates near Greencastle, Pennsylvania. Corporal Rihl was the first Union soldier killed north of the Mason-Dixon Line.

The label also relates that the willow tree in the background was originally planted as a sapling taken from near Napoleon’s grave of the island of St. Helena. [ad] [ph:L]
