Captain William Jerald Le Moyne, Company B, 28th Massachusetts Infantry, was severely wounded in action at Fox’s Gap on South Mountain on 14 September 1862, probably while on picket duty that night. The wound disabled him for field service and he was discharged in October 1862.

He returned to his profession: stage actor in Boston and New York. He retired in 1901.

His watercolor self-portrait above, sent to actress Elizabeth Jane Phillips about 1880, is online thanks to Mary Glen Chitty.
