View is a vignette of Private Charles A. Hunt wearing a dark frock coat with a matching military vest.

Image is clear with very good contrast. Image is very clean.

Reverse has a period ink inscription that reads “C. H. HUNT / Co. H. 12. N. H. VOLS.” The middle initial “H” is incorrect and should be “A.” The top edge of the mount is slightly trimmed.

Charles A. Hunt was living in Laconia, New Hampshire when he enlisted as a Private in Company H, 12th New Hampshire Infantry on August 8, 1862. At the time he was 35 years old. He was discharged on June 21, 1865.

The 12th New Hampshire was assigned to the 3rd Corps of the Army of the Potomac where it saw its first action at Fredericksburg.

The regiment suffered heavily at Chancellorsville on May 3, 1863 and at Gettysburg where the regiment defended the area around the Klingle farm along the Emmitsburg Road suffering 17 killed, 68 wounded, 3 captured and 18 missing.

In December of 1863 the 12th was transferred to the 18th Corps and saw action at Williamsburg, Swift Creek, Drewry’s Bluff, Fort Stevens, Cold Harbor and Petersburg.   [ad]
