Lt George W Greene

19 April 2019

Lieutenant George Washington “Wash” Greene was in action with Company E of the 19th Indiana Infantry in Maryland in September 1862. He was their Captain when he was captured at Gettysburg in July 1863. He was held at Libby Prison in Richmond, VA and was among a group of 109 officers who tunnelled out of Libby in February 1864, but he was recaptured and spent the rest of the war in Southern prisons.

His carte-de-visite (CDV) is in the collection of the Indiana State Library.
