CDV is a vignette bust view of Del’isle in a light-colored civilian suit.

Contrast and clarity are excellent. Mount corners are clipped but the paper is in nice shape.

Reverse has a period pencil ID of “MAJ. C. G. DEL’ISLE.” There is also some collector information in pencil.

Image is from the collection of the late William A. Turner.

The records in the National Archives simply states the following;

“The records show that Charles G. Del’isle was appointed Captain of Company K, 1t Regiment, 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, Louisiana Militia of the Confederate States of America on June 15, 1861, and a man of that name is also shown to have been in service as 1st Lieutenant, Captain Surgi’s Company (Sappers and Miners) Louisiana Militia in October 1861.

There are no muster rolls on file in this office of either company, and no other record as of either organization has been found.

He is shown to have served as Assistant Engineer, Confederate States Army, as early as July 1, 1863 and as late as May, 1864.

He was appointed 1st Lieutenant of Engineers, Confederate States Army, to take rank from October 19, 1864, from the State of Louisiana, and ordered to report to Chief of Engineers Bureau.

His name appears on an official paper dated April 1, 1865 and no later record has been found.”

In postwar life he was surveyor in New Orleans.

Findagrave.com shows a Charles Del’isle born in Haiti and buried in New Orleans St. Louis Cemetery No.2. Not sure if this is the same man.  [ad][ph:L]
