Cdv Severely Wounded At Gettysburg Civil War Soldier:
TWICE WOUNDED and POW-- AMAZING History of ServiceCivil War cdv of Major Thomas Chamberlin. Chamberlin had service with the 34th PA, where he served as a Captain. At New Market Cross Roads, he was wounded (shot in the leg) while trying to save the Regimental Colors. Subsequently, he was captured, spent two months at Libby Prison and then exchanged.
He was offered a promotion to Major and joined the 150th PA. On the first day of fighting at GETTYSBURG he was shot in the shoulder and chest during the action at McPherson's Farm. The Gettysburg wounds proved too severe to recover from and Chamberlin resigned his commission as a newly promoted Lieutenant Colonel.
Chamberlin wrote the unit history of the 150th and this photograph is found in that book (See last photograph).
A great opportunity to own a significant Civil War image.
GUARANTEED to be a Civil War cdv-- I do NOT sell reproductions.
