Douglass Falls, Ohio Veteran Wearing Post Badge & Ohio State Medal Cabinet Card

A nice cabinet card of an Ohio veteran wearing his Dan Brown Post badge, an Ohio state Civil War medal, and two smaller GAR badges.  The photo was taken by the Zanesville Art Co., 130 Main Street, Zanesville, Ohio as noted on the card.  THe edges of the card has some bumps and bruises but this does not intrude upon the quality of the photograph. 

Joseph Torbett at the 1897 UCV National Reunion Cabinet Card

A nice cabinet card photograph of Joseph Torbett at the 1897 United Confederate Veterans National reunion held in Nashville, Tennessee.  Torbett served in the Huwald Tennessee Light Artillery Battery.  After doing early war service in East Tennessee, Huwald's Light Artillery served with Forrest and then Wheller's cavalry for the rest of the war. 
There are five badge and ribbons on Torbett's suit coat.  The ribbon in the center says "DELEGATE U.C.V.".  A 1897 UCV National ribbon is to the  right of the center ribbon.  A UCV Lapel pin is to the right of the 1897 National ribbon.  On the left of the center ribbon is a three piece badge with a hanger, ribbon, and drop.  Unfortunately I can't make out what badge it is but it is likely the drop has John B. Gordon's likeness on it.  The final pin back to the far left of center has Robert E. Lee's likeness on it.  I have enhanced the photo for you to more clearly see the badges.
The photographer was Taylor & Wrye, Broad and Vine Streets, Nashville, Tennessee as stamped on the card.
Please note the second and third photos are computer enhanced photographs.  THe card looks like the first photograph.

Major R. Wilson and the 11th North Carolina and 1st Sharpshooters Flag Cabinet Card

An outstanding cabinet card of Major Reuben E. Wilson and the flag of the Yadkin Gray Eagles, 11th North Carolina Infantry and Co. A, 1st Battalion North Carolina Sharpshooters!  Yes, the Major is an amputee!  He lost his leg April 2, 1865 at Petersburg in a charge.  A shell cut off his left leg.  There are not many photographs of Confederate battle flags. 
The Yadkin Gray Eagles were the first company raised in Yadkin County, North Carolina.  Upon their arrival in Virginia, the company was mustered into Confederate service as Company B, 11th Regiment North Carolina Volunteers, later the 21st Regiment North Carolina State Troops.
At the reorganization of the Confederate army at Manassass in February 1862, Companies B and E were detatched from the regiment and redesignated Companies A and B, 1st Battalion North Carolina Sharpshooters.Lt. Reuben E. Wilson of Company B was promoted to Captain on the company.  When the battalion commander was promoted to regimental command, Wilson was promoted to major and given command of the battalion.
This battalion was an active participant in nearly every battle fought by the Army of Northern Virginia, from Manassas to Appomattox, and because of what was called their "peculiar and efficient drill", engaged in many skirmishes in which the main army did not participate.
The above flag was presented to the Yadkin Gray Eagles upon their departure for Virginia.  It was made from the silk dresses of the young ladies of the county and presented to the company by Miss Lou Glen, later Mrs. Joseph Williams.  The captain, in receiving it on behalf of the company, closed his speach with these words:
"When this cruel war is over, Miss Lou,
This flag untarnished shall be returned to you."
This is perhaps the only Confederate company flag that was carried through twenty-six battles, from Manassas to Appomattox, through the war and returned "untarnished," to its donors.  In 1898, the daughter of Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Robert Daniels, was the guardian of the flag.  THe flag was later presented to the state of North Carolina.
On August 9, 1862, in a charge against the enemy near Warrenton, Va., Major Wilson was severly wounded when a minie ball broke both bones of the right forearm.  At the same time, his left leg was shattered below the knee ba a grape-shot, which disabled him for several months.  On April 2, 1865, in a charge at Petersburg, he was again wounded, his left leg cut off by a shell.  He was hospitalized, paroled on April 21, rearrested, and taken to Libby Prison, where he remained until December 20, 1865.
When life returned to normal, Major Wilson ran a successful mercantile business in Augusta, Georgia.
This photograph is a post-war picture of Major WIlson flanked by the flag of his company, the Yadkin Gray Eagles.
This information came from "The Flags of CIvil War North Carolina" by Glenn Dedmondt and the "Confederate Veteran" magazine.
The photograph was taken by Farrell & Edwards, Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  A corner of the card is missing but this does not hurt the actual photograph.

Wonderful Confederate Officer CDV

139th Pennsylvania Infantry KIA Identified Officer


A very nice CDV of Lt. Charles Long of the 139th Pennsylvania Infantry.  A great three quarter pose of an officer holding a sword identified to a unit listed in the top 300 fighting regiments!  The Civil War Database says Long was died of his wounds on August 6, 1864.  It doesn't say where he was wounded but in July it moved to Washington with the 6th corps to confront Gen. Early, and after Gen. Sheridan assumed command of the forces, it took an honor-able part in the victories achieved at the Opequan, Fisher's hill, and Cedar creek.  I think it is safe to say he was wounded in one of those battles.  The CDV has a Pittsburg, PA backmark and Long is buried in Pittsburg.
