I decided to flip through the link she provided for the Civil War Collection. I've come across a photo that I believe we genealogists should be able to solve. Particularly those us who are strong in Civil War or Military History.
Here's what we know:
- The name of the person in the photo is Carl
- He was 18 years old when he was killed on April 1, 1865
He was killed in combat during the fighting at Dinwiddie Court House (March 31) and Five Forks (April 1), shortly before Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865.
- Possible identification: Carlos E. Rogers of Company K, 185th New York, who was killed on either March 29 or 30, 1865, at Quaker Road in Dinwiddie County. (Source: North South Trader's Civil War, vol. 35, 2010, p. 55)
Here's the photo of Carl but please see the original page in case there are any more clues there:
