This photograph of Samuel McCutcheon and Shilo S. Walthour was kindly provided by Paul Blackham. Both men were in Company F of the 11th Pennsylvania Infantry and Samuel was a Corporal when he was wounded by a gunshot to the groin in action at Antietam on 17 September 1862. He eventually returned to duty and was Captain of the Company in June 1865.

Sergeant Walthour was wounded on 30 August 1862 at 2nd Bull Run and may not have been in Maryland, but he mustered out with Captain McCutcheon and the Company on 1 July 1865 in Harrisburg.
