    [Gettysburg Casualty]. Union Lieutenant Colonel Charles R. Mudge Autograph Document Signed and Carte de Visite. One page, 7.75" x 2.5", Boston, August 2, 1862. Mudge was captain of the 2nd Massachusetts Infantry when he wrote this short note acknowledging that he has "examined TLD Perkins accounts and find that 147 Rations is right." Accompanying the note is a 2.5" x 4.25" studio portrait of Mudge in uniform, sitting at a table, his right elbow set upon the table. The image is affixed to a Whipple, Boston mount. An ink inscription below the photograph tells of the fate of Mudge, in full: "Maj. C.R. Mudge 2nd Mass Vol. Inty Kill'd in Action at Gettysburg July 3d 1865." Both are near fine.
