Outstanding carte view identified as Lester C. Angell of New York. Lester stands here dressed in his artillery service jacket and dark trousers. His cap rests on the table beside him with brass artillery insignia flanked on the left by the numeral “4” and the the right the letter “B” indicating 4th Battery. Above the artillery insignia in his Company letter “C”. Initially the 10th New York Heavy Artillery was comprised of the 4th, 5th and 7th Battalions of Light Artillery. Those battalions were later consolidated in late December, 1862 forming the 10th New York Heavy Artillery. The regiment would see fighting at Cold Harbor, Petersburg, The Mine Explosion and Cedar Creek losing a total of 267 to both battle and disease. Mustering as a private with the regiment, Lester would see promotions to corporal in June of 63′ and then to sergeant in May, 1865. He would be mustered out of service the following month. Wonderful view of Lester as he stands wearing a leather belt around the waist into which he has tucked a Colt Army revolver. This example has a beautiful period inscription across the front bottom reading “Lester C. Angell Co. C. 4th Battery Light Artillery” which dates it to just prior to the batteries consolidation into the 10th New York. Preriod presentation inscription on the reverse as well reading “Presented to Mr. & Mrs. Morgeklock”. Back marked out of New York.
