Description:
These 22 identified & 2 unidentified CDV's from Battery B, must have come from an album at one time. I aquired them loose without an album. Twenty of the identifications are in period ink and two are in period pencil. There are also two unidentified images which came with the group. Battery B "Cooper's Battery" saw action in the 1st Army Corps at Mechanicsville, Gaines Mill, Glendale, Gainesville, Second Bul Run, South Mt., Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mine Run, Willderness, Spottsylvania, North Anna, Bethesda Church, Petersburg & Weldon Railroad. Here is a list of the names: H.T. Danforth, James P. Alcorn, Francis M. Hoover, Wm. W. Officer, Wm. Lusk, James A. M'Cready, Lee S. M'Cleary, J.W. Allen, Wm. H.H. Davis, Benj. Oswald, D.H. MCluskey, David P. Needler, Quinton A. Dangan, Wm. Myers, Wm. M. Patterson, George J. McGinnis, John, A. Meanor, John A. Weston, Jeremiah Lysheon & Wm. E. Hudson. I have a short general history on each individual showing his service with Battery B(Mustered in, Wounded, Mustered out). Three of the cards have some light soiling the rest are in very good condition.
