CDV is of Orlando J. Brown posed with a cane or walking stick standing by a table in front of a painted backdrop of a pastoral scene. He wears a dark forage cap, dark frock coat with sergeant’s chevrons and light trousers. The coat is open to show a matching dark vest.

Contrast and clarity are good. Mount and paper have the usual light scattered surface dirt.

Reverse has a period ink ID of “SERGT. O. J. BROWN, Co. G 118th REGT, N.Y. VOL.” There is also some collector information in pencil. Bottom has a canceled 1 cent stamp.

Orlando J. Brown was born in Schroon, New York. He enlisted as a private in Company G, 118th New York Infantry at Johnstown on August 22, 1862. At the time he was described as 5’ 9” tall with a light complexion, blue eyes and light hair. His profession is given as farmer. He was promoted to corporal August 30, 1862 and to sergeant on May 16, 1864. He became ill in October of 1864 and was sent to the US General Hospital at Portsmouth, Virginia. He was furloughed from there on May 6, 1865 and was discharged at Albany, New York on June 6, 1865.

While he was with the 118th they were engaged at Drewry’s Bluff, Fort Darling, Cold Harbor, Petersburg and Chaffin’s Farm.

Nothing is known of his post-war life.   [ad][ph:L]
