Carte view identified as 1st lieutenant Daniel S. Dean of the 28th Iowa Volunteer Infantry. Dean would be commissioned into “C” company in October, 1862 alongside his son serving as a private in the same company. 956 men and officers made up the regiment and by November they were already embarking on their first expedition into Grenada, Mississippi from Helena, Arkansas. 1863 would be a busy year for the regiment. They would take part in both the White River and Yazoo Pass Expeditions as well as the Vicksburg Campaign. During the month of May alone, they would fight at Port Gibson, Champion Hill and take part in the siege and assaults on Vicksburg. The Siege of Jackson and Western Louisiana Campaign would end the year. In March of 1864, the Red River Campaign would begin where they would take part in the fight at Sabine Cross Roads. Late in the summer, Sheridan’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign would begin and the regiment would suffer the loss of 200 men during the fighting. Daniel would be among the number. During the Battle of Opequan, the men of the 28th would suffer under a withering fire accumulating the loss of some 80 men, including Dean who had been severely wounded. Dean would be mentioned in the after battle report “First Lieutenant D. S. Dean of Company C was wounded, and told his own son not to leave the ranks to assist him, until the rebels were whipped, and he did not, until ordered to do so by me.”. The wounding would cut short Daniel’s military aspirations. Two months after his wounding, he would resign his commission in November, 1864. He would however receive a brevet to captain in March, 1865. This view shows Daniel dressed in his lieutenants uniform with a period ink signature across the front bottom reading “D. S. Dean”. Back marked out of New Orleans. This example does have some soiling and wear to it.
