Description

Carte view identified as Henry Parker Worsley of the 4th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Henry would muster as a private in Company G in mid September of 1862 for a nine month term. In March, 1863, Henry would be detailed as a store keeper in the Commissary Department at Brashear City. On June 30, 1863, Henry along with a 135 men and 5 officers from the regiment were placed under arrest by General Grover for refusing to do their duty. The men argued that their term of service had expired and were therefor no longer employed in the service of the US military. The men would be held in Baton Rouge until September 7th when they were ordered to proceed to Boston to be mustered out of service. This view shows Henry seated with his cap resting in his lap. Brass infantry insignia can be seen pinned to the top along with his company letter G and the numeral 4. Back marked out of Boston, Henry most likely sat for this view shortly after his initial enlistment. This view has a pencil notation on the reverse that incorrectly states that Henry died during the war.
