Capt Daniel Kistler

5 March 2020

Here’s a pair of before-and-after photographs of Daniel Kistler, Jr. on a page in From Burg of Greene in Pictures Seen (1927), online from the University of Pittsburgh. Kistler, from Greenburg, PA and Captain of Company H, 11th Pennsylvania Reserves, was captured at Gaines’ Mill, VA in June 1862 and held at Libby Prison in Richmond, VA until exchanged in August.

Very soon afterward, on 17 September, he was mortally wounded in action at Antietam. He died on the 28th.
