Three-quarter standing studio view of Bailie in uniform. He wears a single-breasted frock with rank insignia seen on the collar. A well-ornamented forage cap sits on table next to him. On the crown is a palmetto tree, crossed cannons, and “P” and “G”. Image is clear but light in contrast. An atypical plain mount. No photographer’s backmark.

Bailie enlisted on November 1861. He died in June of 1865 and is buried in Magnolia Cemetery, Augusta, GA.

Modern pencil notations by William A. Turner; from an identified album in his collection. By way of the common mount and the same back drop in many photos, Mr. Turner determined that the photographer was George S. Cook in Charleston, S.C.

The 3rd Battalion, South Carolina Light Artillery was also known the Palmetto Battalion, Palmetto Battalion Light Artillery, and White's Battalion South Carolina Light Artillery. It was organized in November/December of 1861. Its members were from the counties of Allendale, Richland, Charleston, Georgetown, and Kershaw. The battalion started with three companies and seven others were added at various times, the last about June 21, 1863. known as the Palmetto Battalion Light Artillery, and also White's Battalion South Carolina Light Artillery. The unit served in the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, but the companies were frequently detached to serve in other battalions.
