Carte view identified as Captain William Silloway of the 25th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. A resident of Hartford, Connecticut he would be commissioned a captain of Company K beginning in November, 1862. Serving in the Department of the Gulf the regiment would see action during the Bayou Teche Campaign, the Battle of Irish Bend and lastly the Battle for Port Hudson. It was here that William would be wounded on May 12, 1863. He would survive the wound and be mustered out of service with the remainder of the regiment in August, 1863. Nice period ink signature by William across the front bottom. Nice Connecticut back mark as well. Presumably taken before the regiment left the state on the 14th of November. One slight tear along the left side at the bottom.
