Description

Carte view identified as Albert Condon of the 25th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Albert would muster with Company C in September of 1861. He would subsequently be sent to Annapolis, Maryland to serve as a guard at the parole camp located there. In December of that year he would fall ill and would be confined to a hospital ship. Following his recovery he would be on detached service working as a carpenter, his listed profession prior to his enlistment. Albert would work in that role through at least the end of 1862. He appears to have returned to his regiment sometime in the early part of 1863. Present with the regiment in July, 1863 where they would take part in the Battle of Hills Point, North Carolina. Albert would be wounded during the fray. The wound would prove to be slight and by October, Albert would be on detached service once more working as an orderly for the 25th Massachusetts assistant surgeon Alpheus Hoyt. He would do so until February of 1864 when he would briefly serve as an orderly for assistant surgeon John Doughty of the U.S. Volunteers Medical Staff. The following month he was on detached service working as a teamster at Newport News, Virginia. If he had not bounced around enough, during the summer of 1864, Albert would be detailed to work in the Stretcher Corps. He would do so until his discharge in October of that year. A period pencil id can be seen on the reverse reading “Mr. Albert Condon”. It is back marked from Camp Parole, Maryland where Albert would be serving as a provost guard late in 1861.
