Albert George

10 January 2020

Here’s young Private Albert George of Cadiz, OH.

He enlisted in the 30th Ohio Infantry in October 1861 at age 18 and probably had his picture taken (hand-colored tintype) in uniform soon afterward.

I’d guess he was about 16 in that earlier carte-de-vistite (CDV).

Sadly his young life ended at Antietam on 17 September 1862.

Both of his pictures are online from the Ohio History Connection (formerly Ohio Historical Society).
