Image is a chest-up view of Daniel C. Low of Company B, 52nd Pennsylvania Infantry. He wears a dark frock coat open to reveal a dark vest with watch chain. Image is set within a printed frame on the face of the mount.

Contrast and clarity are good. Mount has clipped corners and has been trimmed. Mount and paper have moderate surface dirt. Bottom of the mount has a period ink ID of “DANIEL C. LOW.”

Reverse has a partial period ink inscription that reads “CORPL. D. C. LOW, CO. B 52ND PENN. VOLS.” Due to the trimming of the top edge of the mount most of the name is missing but there is enough there to make it out.

Daniel C. Lowe was born in Meshoppen, Pennsylvania in 1835. He enlisted as a private in the 52nd Pennsylvania Infantry on October 11, 1861 and was promoted to corporal November 6, 1864. He was mustered out at Harrisburg on July 12, 1865.

Lowe died in Susquehanna County on November 23, 1920 and is buried in Wylausing Cemetery in Wylausing, Pennsylvania with his wife Augusta.

The 52nd Pennsylvania was organized on October 7, 1861. After spending a few months in the Army of the Potomac the regiment was moved to the Charleston area where it spent most of its service. They saw action on the Peninsula with Keys 4th Corps with their heaviest action being at Fair Oaks. After moving south, they served at Battery Gregg, Charleston, Fort Johnson, where they lost heavily in captured, James Island, Johns Island, Fort Putnam and Fort Wagner.  [ad][ph:L]
