CDV of Capt. Richard Derby, 15th Mass., KIA Antietam,
2006, Fall Americana, Nov. 16 & 17
by “Black & Batchelder, Boston” with lengthy period ink inscription on verso reading, “Lieut. Richard Derby. Co. H., 15th Regt. Mass. Vol. Genl. King’s brigade. Camp Kalorama. Washington D.C.” Derby joined from Boston in July 1861 as 2nd lieutenant rising to the command of Company H. in August 1862 in the wake of incessant fighting that included Fair Oaks, Savage Station, Glendale and Malvern Hill. The 15th Massachusetts was not heavily engaged at 2nd Manassas but paid dearly at Antietam, being flanked and losing over 300 men in the West Woods in less than a half an hour. Among the regiment’s 98 killed and wounded was Captain Derby.
