Chest-up view of this gentleman in civilian clothes. He wears a dark frock, white shirt, and thin bow tie. Image is clear with good contrast. Photographer’s backmark, Wearn & Hix, Columbia, S.C.

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. A Xerox of another photo apparently showing the same man in a full Confederate uniform and kepi is included.

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]
