The Ed Italo Collection

11th Vermont Infantry (aka 1st Artillery, 11th Vermont Volunteers)
Album of Officers of the 11th Vermont, February 1864



Ed acquired this photo album with 50 cdvs. There is a hand written piece of paper with each officer's name, all by the same hand, slipped into each page slot. With a bit of research, pinpointing ranks and commission dates, it was easy to determine that someone on the staff collected a photo of every active officer as the regiment prepared to join the 1st Brigade.

We believe we were finally able to narrow down the earliest timeframe to early February 1864, based on newly minted 2nd Lieutenant Henry Bedell's diary entry on 4 February, which begins "Got 6 pictured taken - paid $1.50.ist, as they appeared in the album.

Sample photos shown below in situ. Individual photographs willl be displayed with their respective companies or the Staff as listed on the menu to the left.
