Harker (1835-1864) by Morse's Gallery of the Cumberland, Nashville; Alexander Hays (1819-1864) by Brady's National Portrait Gallery; two (2) of Winfield Scott Hancock (1824-1886), one by Brady's National Portrait Gallery and one by Anthony, New York, from a negative from Brady's Gallery; William Hays (1819-1875); and Herman Haupt (1817-1905). The cartes of William Hays and Haupt are by Anthony, New York, from negatives from Brady's National Portrait Gallery. Harker was Colonel of the 65th Ohio Infantry. He fought with distinction at Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga and Kennesaw Mountain, where he had four horses shot out from under him before being killed by a Confederate sharpshooter. Haupt was a civil engineer, specializing in railroads. He was on the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Railroad. He was highly efficient in building, repairing, maintaining and protecting railroad and telegraph facilities in the 1862-1863 period. Alexander Hays was a close personal friend of Ulysses Grant. He was the Colonel of the 63rd Pennsylvania Regiment. He distinguished himself at Yorktown, Williamsburg, Seven Pines, Malvern Hill, Second Bull Run (wounded) and, most notably, at Gettysburg when his troops manned the low stone wall at which Pickett's Charge was directed. He was killed in action at the Wilderness on May 5, 1864. William Hayes was a veteran of the Mexican and Seminole Wars. His specialty was artillery. He fought at the Peninsula, Williamsburg, Gaines' Mill, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg (3rd day, leading the II Corps after Hancock was wounded). From the collection of Dr. Michael Krane.
