    Description

    Carte de Visite: Connecticut Regiment on the Eve of Shipping Out. Most unusual photo with back mark of W. H. Jennings of Norwich, Connecticut. It shows an officer standing in front of a regimental flag in a studio setting. The flag appears to have its stars arranged in the shape of a star with the dates "1776 1862", the number "26" and part of a word beginning with the letters G R. The 26th Regiment Infantry was organized in Norwich, Connecticut on November 10, 1862, and shipped out to New Orleans two days later. They were involved with the siege at Port Hudson. Mustered out on August 17, 1863, they suffered 145 deaths, 90 by reason of disease (likely yellow fever or malaria). Very minor wear to corners.
