First Lieutenant Gerrit Van Ingen was acting Adjutant of the 89th New York Infantry when he was mortally wounded at Antietam on 17 September 1862. His leg was amputated but that did not save him; he died at a field hospital near Sharpsburg on 26 September.

His photograph is from family genealogist Peggy Weston Byrd, in a 2010 family presentation [pdf].
