Item No. AR9221JR Category


Albumen photograph of two men photographed at Devil’s Den during the 30th Reunion of 1893. The two men are photographed with their bikes and posed among the rocks of Devil’s Den. The back of the albumen has an old inscription reading “Allen Shetter Trostle, Father. Robert Riley Trostle, Son. At Devil’s Den. Attended 30th Reunion of Union Troops.”. The father mentioned here and shown in the photographed would be Allen Trostle of the 165th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, a 9 month regiment. Allen would muster with Company D in November, 1862. The regiment would aid in the defense of Suffolk against Longstreet and take part in the fight at Weldon Railroad. He would be discharged at Gettysburg on July 28, 1863. Whether Allen was related to Peter Trostle, who owned the now famous Trostle farm located on the Gettysburg Battlefield I do not know. I have not any genealogical research to confirm that possible fact. This one is in some rough shape with a number of repairs and breaks. Measures 11″ x 8″. Back marked by well known Gettysburg photographer William Tipton.
