Nice full standing view of an Army Surgeon identified in period pencil on the top front as Otto Schittler.

The subject is posed with one arm leaning on a high backed parlor chair and the other resting against his hip. The chair is partially covered by a drape. The doctor wears a single breasted dark frockcoat with turned back lapels and 1st Lieutenant shoulders straps, matching dark vest open at the top to reveal a white shirt and dark trousers.

Image has very good contrast and clarity. Mount corners are clipped. As mentioned there is a period pencil ID at top left that reads “SURG. OTTO SCHITTLER.” Clipping of the mount corner caught only part of the letter “S” in Surgeon.

Reverse has a back mark of A. KIENTZLE… PHILADELPHIA along with some collector information in pencil.

Otto Schittler, otherwise listed as G. Otto Schittler, was born in 1832. He was assigned as Assistant Surgeon of the 129th Pennsylvania on August 15, 1862 to serve 9 months. The regiment served with the 5th Corps of the Army of the Potomac and saw light action at Antietam but lost heavily at Fredericksburg and moderately at Chancellorsville before being mustered out on May 18, 1863. Surgeon Schittler was present throughout the 9 months.

On June 19, 1863 Schittler was commissioned Surgeon of the 27th Pennsylvania Emergency Militia and served in the Harrisburg area until the Gettysburg Campaign ended. He was discharged on August 1, 1863.

After the war he resided in Plattsmouth, Nebraska where he died on June 20, 1893. He is buried there in Oak Hill Cemetery.   [ad]
