Waist-up studio view of Samuel W. Tanner in uniform. He wears his vest and single-breasted frock with 1st Lt. shoulder straps. Image is clear with very good contrast and detail. Photographer's backmark, Buell & Bigden, Buffalo. Period pencil identification on back.

Tanner joined Company A, 44th New York Infantry on August 30, 1861 when he was 20 years old. He was promoted to Commissary Sergeant in September. He was then discharged for disability in May of 1862.

On January 3, 1863 he joined the 12th New York Cavalry as a 2nd lieutenant. He was promoted to 1st lieutenant on January 8, 1864 and resigned 18 days later. He must have rushed right out to the photographer to get this image recorded because he was never even mustered in as 1st Lt. before he resigned.

This cdv was part of the Ray Richie collection. [jet] [ph:L]
