Image shows Long in left profile sporting a goatee and a dark civilian suit.

Contrast and clarity are very good. Mount and paper are very good however, there is a section of paper residue stuck to the bottom edge of the mount. The bottom center and right corner are mostly affected.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for KUHN HEMMING of BALTIMORE. Reverse has a late 19th/ early 20th century ink ID of “EDWARD PENDLETON LONG” and an old pencil ID of “BETTY BUSER WILLIAMS.”

Edward Pendleton Long is listed in the records as either E. Pendleton Long or E. P. Long.

He was born in 1836, it is believed in Virginia.

On April 17, 1861 he enlisted as a private in Company B, 13th Virginia Infantry. He was court-martialed on September 15, 1861 for an unspecified reason and was fined 1 months pay.

Long was mustered out on January 17, 1862. While he was with the 13th it was involved in several small engagements in western Virginia.

Not done with his service, Long enlists again, this time as a private in Company A, 7th Virginia Cavalry at Woodstock on March 2, 1862. He was captured in early September 1862, paroled September 27th and was finally exchanged on November 10, 1862.

All things went along well until November 14, 1863 when Long became ill. He was given a furlough for 30 days starting December 4, 1863. He returned to duty on February 18, 1864 and was present at Reams Station where he had a horse shot out from under him on August 25, 1864. His records end at that point and all that is known of him after the war is that he died in Baltimore.  [ad][ph:L]
