The latest addition to the collection. CDV of Lt. James W. Barber of Co. C 1st Maryland Infantry Battalion (2nd MD). Lt. Barber was wounded at 2nd Winchester and then killed on July 3, 1863.
The CDV was from Richmond and was most likely taken at Lt. Barber’s muster in fall 1862.
The signature on CDV is most likely not Lt. Barbers. The unit was not named 2nd Maryland until fall of 1863. This CDV was either a family heirloom or was part of the veteran artifacts originally kept at the Maryland Confederate Veterans Home (then) in Pikesville, Md.
