Capt Henry A Sand

28 March 2020

Captain Henry A Sand of the 103rd New York Infantry was mortally wounded at Antietam and was treated in a temporary hospital in the German Reformed Church in Sharpsburg. But he died there in October 1862. This photograph is among many that hung on the walls of the New York State Capitol in Albany during the war – note the pinholes – to remind lawmakers of their sons in the fight. It’s now online from the New York State Military Museum.
