CDV is of Charles J. MacMurdo of Capt. Brander’s Company of the Letcher Light Artillery of Pegram’s Battalion, Army of Northern Virginia. He is seated and posed in a slight left profile. He wears a dark shell jacket with very light piping running down the front edge on both sides of the placket. The jacket is open from the midriff up to reveal a light-colored military vest beneath.

Contrast and clarity are excellent as are the paper and mount.

Reverse is blank but for some collector information in pencil at bottom.

Charles J. MacMurdo was born in Richmond, Virginia in November of 1836. He enlisted as a private in Brander’s Company of Letcher’s Virginia Light Artillery on April 7, 1862. On May 22, 1862 he was assigned as ordnance sergeant for duty with the division ordnance officer of A. P. Hill’s Division. He would eventually be sent to work in one of the arsenals at Richmond. Records show that he was paroled at Greensboro, North Carolina in 1865.

He died in New Orleans on January 9, 1917 and is buried there in Metairie Cemetery.  [ad] [ph:L]
