Ned Duffey was a Private with Parker’s Richmond Battery at Sharpburg and was wounded in action there. He was promoted to Sergeant in March 1864 but was a Private again in November. In 1864 he was court-martialed for insubordination (verdict not known) and he ended the war with Woolfolk’s Battery.

This photograph taken of him in September 1925, along with two others – seated hatless, and a bust view – now at the Library of Congress, along with an affirmative reply of 27 January 1900 from General James Longstreet to a letter of Duffey’s.
