Offered here are two identical images identified as Pvt. John Anorson by Philadelphia photographers Winderoth & Taylor. Best described by our photographs, the first is a soiled and well-worn view with a fragmented revenue stamp on the back with an old pencil notation Uncle John died in the War. On the front is the very lidht identification John Anorson apparently in the same hand. The second photo is identical save the notations, but in much nicer condition. Young John Anorson was just eighteen years of age when he enlisted and was mustered in on October 11, 1861 as a Private of Co. B 91st Pennsylvania Infantry. Pvt. Anorson would have seen action at Fredericksburg before reenlisting o the day after Christmas of 1863. He was taken prisoner by Confederate forces as Chancellorsville on May 3, 1863 and died of disease as a POW at Andersonville on August 18, 1864. He is buried at Andersonville National Cemetery, Andersonville, GA (Grave #6029). Of cursory interest is that Anorson was a little fellow as can be noted by his photograph, measuring just five foot four and one half enlistment records. A good look at his CDV also reveals that he had one eye that was severely cocked. Clearly visible in the better image the malady was corrected by hand in the identified view. A nice pair of photographers with a side interest to the prisoner of war collector. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
