Lieutenant William Harding 6th Pennsylvania Reserve Corps 35th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry



Item No. CV33098 Categories , Tag


Very nice carte view of Lieutenant William Harding of the 6th Pennsylvania Reserve Corps also known as the 35th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. At 30 years of age, William would muster as a 2nd lieutenant in Company B in July, 1861. Their first battle at Dranesville, Virginia would prove to be a victory for Union forces late in December before settling in to winter quarters near Langley. As 1862 dawned, they would take part in the Peninsular Campaign taking an active role in the engagements of that campaign with William receiving a promotion to 1st lieutenant that May. William would be present with the regiment until August, 1862 when he would begin serving on detached service as ordinance officer. He would remain in that role until his discharge in June, 1864. William would later receive a brevet to captain in March, 1865 for gallant service during the Battle of the Wilderness. This view shows a very stern looking William with the rank of 1st lieutenant dating it to sometime after May, 1862. Signed on the front in period ink “Yours truly Wm. Harding”. This one has a really neat back mark on it as well from Bergstresser 3rd Division, 5th Corps, Army of the Potomac. Full service records accompany this view.
