CDV providing exterior view of the cemetery of the 13th Connecticut Volunteers located near Baton Rouge, LA. Uncredited: ca 1863. Accompanied by modern documentation indicating that the CDV was originally found in the personal album of Corporal William G. Hammond and identified in his hand, presumably on the album page. Hammond served with Co. A, 50th Massachusetts Infantry, and fought with the 19th Army Corps during the Port Hudson Campaign. The 13th Connecticut also took part in the bloody Union assaults and subsequent siege of Port Hudson between May and July of 1863, which is likely around the time that this photograph was taken.
Provenance:Eugene R. Groves Collection of 19th Century Photography
