CDV is a seated view of Henry Carrier wearing a dark frock coat buttoned at the throat. The coat has veteran service stripes on the cuffs and a 6th Corps badge on the chest. He also wears dark vest and light trousers.

Contrast and clarity are good. Paper and mount have the usual light surface dirt from age and storage. Top of the paper, just above the subjects head is the letter “H” in pencil. It looks as though he was going to sign the front of the image and then decided to sign the reverse.

Reverse has a photographer’s imprint for C. MILLER… BURLINGTON, VT. Top has nice period ink signature “YOURS TRULY, HENRY CARRIER, CO. F 5TH VT. VOLS. VETS.” There is also some collector information in pencil.

Henry Carrier was born in 1839. He enlisted in Salisbury, Vermont as a private in Company F, 5th Vermont Infantry on September 16, 1861. He is listed as deserting on September 10, 1862. Records show he returned to duty on April 2, 1863 and became a reenlisted veteran on December 15, 1863.

Carrier was wounded while fighting in the Wilderness but the wound did not keep him out of the ranks. He was mustered out at Munson’s Hill, Virginia on June 29, 1865.

He died in Vermont in 1909 and is buried in Weybridge Hill Cemetery in Weybridge, Vermont.    [ad][ph:L]
