Charles H. Tarbox

27 March 2019

22 year old Private Charles H. Tarbox of Company G, 35th Massachusetts Infantry had been in the Army for exactly a month when he was killed in action at Antietam on 17 September 1862.

This photograph of him was shared on Pinterest by Scott Doss. I do not know what uniform that is he’s wearing. Pre-war militia or military school, perhaps? Or maybe a costume provided by the photographer.
