Very nice carte view of Lieutenant Edwin Yaw of the 67thNew York Volunteer Infantry, 1st Long Island Volunteers. Edwin would muster into the field and staff of the 67th New York Volunteer Infantry as a sergeant major in June, 1861. Four months later he would be promoted to sergeant of Company H. Numerous promotions would come in 1862. 1st sergeant in July, 2nd lieutenant in October and finally to 1st lieutenant on Christmas day, 1862. Serving with the Army of the Potomac the men of the regiment would see many a battlefield starting in 1862 with the Siege of Yorktown. They would fight in almost every notable battle in the Eastern Theater. Yaw would manage to escape the battles of 1862 and 1863 without injury. 1864 would prove not as lucky. He would be captured on May 6th while engaged in fighting at The Wilderness. He would be imprisoned but a short time before being exchanged and returning to the regiment. Edwin would remain with the regiment until being transferred into the 65th New York Volunteer Infantry in September, 1864. His final discharge would come in March, 1865. Very nice view of Yaw which has been signed twice on the reverse by Edwin reading “Yours Truly Lieut Ed Yaw 67th N.Y.V.V”. back marked out of Canandaigua, New York.
