Beautifully tinted carte view identified as Lieutenant Joseph Cline of the 6th Pennsylvania Heavy Artillery. The 6th Pennsylvania would muster for a one year term beginning in September of 1864. Joseph would muster as a private during the first week of that month, receiving a promotion to 1st sergeant in the weeks following. Just before the close of the year he would see a promotion to his final rank of 2nd lieutenant. Attached to DeRussey’s Division, they would be garrisoned in Washington in defense of the capital. Serving on detached service, they would perform guard duty for the Orange & Alexandria Railroad until November, before returning to Washington. They would spend the majority of their service as an infantry unit despite being an artillery unit. Joseph would be discharged in June of 1865. The lieutenant is photographed here while serving in Washington. Dressed in his lieutenants frock and resting on his sword, his slouch cap rests on the table beside him with embroidered artillery insignia visible. A very faint period pencil inscription on the reverse reads “J. F. Cine*”. Back marked out of Washington. Very nice carte view.
