Very nice carte view identified as Isaac Warner of the 2nd Massachusetts Cavalry. The 25 year old miner would muster with Company M late in February, 1863. The regiment would spend the remainder of the year performing picket duty, carrying out reconnaissance missions and fighting in several small skirmishes. The first part of 1864 would see much of the same before joining in Sheridan’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign in August of that year. They would see fighting at Winchester, Fisher’s Hill, Tom’s Brook and the Battle of Cedar Creek. Following winter camp near Winchester, they would take part in the final push of the war, fighting in the Appomattox Campaign. Dinwiddie Court House, Five Forks, Sailor’s Creek and Appomattox Station would be added to their battle honors. Warner would be mustered out of service in July, 1865 with a promotion to lieutenant although never mustered. This view shows Warner dressed in his cavalry uniform, gauntlets and leaning on his sword. “Sergt Warner” can be seen written on the base of the pedestal on which he leans. An identical identified view can also be found on the Reunion Civil War Antiques website. Back marked out on Boston. Very nice view.
