This CDV photograph is a chest up view of a Harrison in what appears to be civilian clothes. Image is clear with very good contrast. The young man wears a vest and a coat. Mount has been slightly trimmed at the corners. Period ink at bottom, "Yours Respectfully, Geo. W. Harrison". Photographer's backmark, McAdams, Alexandria, VA.

A modern pencil note on the back reads "5th Bttn Va Vols". There are numerous "George Harrisons" in the Confederate Army. Twenty-two from Virginia. If we can assume there is any validity to the pencil note, that perhaps Mr. Turner got this out of a unit identified album, then it narrows it to two likely men:

George Harrison, a Captain in Company A, 5th Battalion Virginia Reserve Infantry which was organized in late 1864 and served in the Department of North Carolina and South Virginia and in 1865 with the Army of Northern Virginia.

George W. Harrison, a Private in the 5th Virginia Infantry which was active throughout the war with the Army of Northern Virginia. He took the Oath Allegiance on 4/2/1865 at Clarksburg, WV.

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