Carte view of an unidentified member of the 23rd New York State Militia. Wonderful view of this young solider dressed in his grey, New York uniform trimmed in black. A large rectangular militia belt plate is worn with the letter “F” embossed on the front of the plate indicating his company. His matching grey cap rests on the table at his side with the numeral “23” clearly visible on the front. The regiment would be raised during the first half of 1862 in Brooklyn, New York composing 10 companies. It would leave the state in mid June of 1863 to serve a 30 day enlistment in the vicinity of Harrisburg. Despite it’s short service, it would take part in the engagements of Oyster Point on June 28th and Carlisle on the first days fight at Gettysburg. Once part of the collection of the renowned historian Michael McAfee. This example is back marked out of Brooklyn where the regiment was raised. Beautiful view of this New York militia uniform.
