Carte view of Alfred Reynolds of the 40th Mississippi Volunteer Infantry. This view shows Reynolds dressed in civilian attire. Alfred would muster with Company K of Captain Campbell’s 40th Mississippi Volunteer Infantry in May, 1862. Not long after his enlistment he is reported as absent with illness from May through December of that year. In January of 1863 he is reported as AWOL. The following month he is reported for desertion. In November of 1863 he was captured in Memphis, Tennessee and in the custody of the Provost Marshall. Within days he was released and sent north after signing the Oath of Allegiance. Sounds to me like he signed up for the bounty and then skedaddled north. No further information was found following his release. The image was purchased directly from the family in Germantown, Tennessee which would make sense since he fled to that state. Back marked out of Canton, Mississippi with an old pencil id on the reverse. This one does come with what scant service records are available for him.
