Rogers is posed leaning against a column. He wears a light-colored coat with turned down lapels. The cut of the coat very much resembles a commercial sack coat. He also wears dark trousers and has a dark military cape with brass buttons thrown over his shoulders.

Contrast and clarity are good. Mount has been trimmed across the top. Paper has light surface dirt from age and storage. Bottom center of the mount has a strong period black ink inscription of “CAPT. ASA ROGERS CSA.”

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for CHS. R. REES & CO…RICHMOND, VA. Top of reverse is signed in black ink “YOUR FRIEND ASA ROGERS 1863.” Bottom of reverse also has some collector information in pencil.

Image is from the late William A. Turner collection.

Asa Rogers Jr. was born at “Oaklawn” in Loudon County, Virginia on August 20, 1836. He was commissioned a 1st lieutenant in Company H, 1st Virginia Cavalry on April 18, 1861 and was promoted to captain the following July 1.

Captain Rogers was present with his Company for 1st Manassas, Kernstown, McDowell, Slaterville, Cross Keys, Port Republic, Gaines’ Mill, Cedar Mountain, 2nd Manassas, South Mountain, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Hartwood Church, Kelly’s Ford, Chancellorsville, Brandy Station, Aldie, Hanover and Gettysburg.

In October 1863 Rogers became ill with diarrhea and was sent to a hospital in Richmond. There he received a thirty-day furlough and returned to duty on November 11, 1863.

Rogers remained with his Company through the Wilderness, Todd’s Tavern, Spotsylvania, Yellow Tavern, North Anna, Cold Harbor, Trevilian Station and Petersburg. He was captured and paroled at Fairfax Courthouse on April 26, 1865.

After the war Rogers was appointed the State Railroad Inspector and served a term in the State Senate and later worked as an IRS collector of Taxes for the 2nd District of Virginia. He was also a member of the A. P. Hill Camp of the United Confederate Veterans.

Rogers died in Petersburg, Virginia on November 20, 1917 and is buried there in Blandford Cemetery.  [ad] [ph:L]
