$100.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1138-867

Three-quarter standing view of this gentleman in civilian clothes. Foxing over lower half of image. An atypical mount. No photographer’s backmark.

Modern pencil notation by William A. Turner lists this man as an unidentified member of the 1st South Carolina Artillery; from an identified album in his collection. By way of the common mount and the same back drop in many photos, Mr. Turner determined that the photographer was George S. Cook in Charleston, S.C.

The 1st Regiment, South Carolina Artillery organized as the 1st Battalion, South Carolina Artillery in the early part of 1861.  On May 24, 1861 the Battalion mustered into Confederate service with five companies. Two more companies were added by the end of the year and in February 1862, two more companies.  The 1st Battalion Artillery was then reorganized as the 1st Regiment, South Carolina Artillery on March 25, 1862. Many of the officers and soldiers were from the Charleston area. The regiment surrendered on April 26, 1865 at Durham Station, North Carolina with the Army of Tennessee.

From the late William A. Turner collection.  [jet] [PH:L]
