Epherema: Houghton Photographs

Houghton Photographs

This is one of my favorites - marked on verso: 'Tentmates Lieut Wm C. Tracy at left, sitting in front of tree. 4th Vermont Infantry 1862'. Tracy was KIA at Weldon RR in 64 and in another of the Lewis Grant field reports I have, he makes special mention of his death and how his troops surrounded his body to protect it. I have not yet researched the others in this photo as well as the other, but I am sure many will be identifiable.
