Bust view of Dargan in uniform. He wears a uniform frock with rank insignia clearly seen on the collar. Image is clear but light in contrast. Signed in ink along bottom edge of mount. An atypical mount which has oxidized. No photographer’s backmark.  Lt. Dargan was in Companies B and H.

Modern pencil notation by William A. Turner on the back; from an identified album in his collection. Mr. Turner determined that the photographer was likely George S. Cook in Charleston, S.C.

The 1st Regiment, South Carolina Artillery organized as the 1st Battalion, South Carolina Artillery in the early part of 1861.  On May 24, 1861 the Battalion mustered into Confederate service with five companies. Two more companies were added by the end of the year and in February 1862, two more companies.  The 1st Battalion Artillery was then reorganized as the 1st Regiment, South Carolina Artillery on March 25, 1862. Many of the officers and soldiers were from the Charleston area. The regiment surrendered on April 26, 1865 at Durham Station, North Carolina with the Army of Tennessee.

From the late William A. Turner collection.  [jet] [PH:L]
