CDV shows Private George W. Weeks seated with one arm resting on a table and holding his forage cap in his lap. He wears a dark frock coat with anchors and turnbuckles on the shoulders, but no shoulder scales, and light trousers. He holds his forage cap in his lap with crossed cannons clearly visible on the crown.

Clarity is good and the contrast is passable but a little darker would have been better. Mount and paper show light surface dirt from age and storage.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for SARGENT & OSGOOD…. FRANKLIN, N. H. The identification is in modern pencil just above the imprint. It reads “GEORGE F. WEEKS CO.A 1st N.H.H.A.”

George Washington Weeks was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on August 22, 1844.

He enlisted as a private in Company K, 1st New Hampshire Heavy Artillery on September 17, 1864 and was mustered out at Washington, D.C. on June 15, 1865.

During his time of service his regiment was stationed in the Defenses of Washington, D.C.

He died January 17, 1920 in Portsmouth and is buried there in Harmony Grove Cemetery. [ad] [ph:L]
