Captain Daniel H Hamilton, Jr was on General Roswell S. Ripley’s staff as acting Assistant Adjutant General at the start of the Maryland Campaign, but resigned “on account of a misunderstanding with his chief” and went to his father’s regiment, the First South Carolina Infantry. He was wounded while serving as acting Adjutant at Boteler’s Ford near Shepherdstown, VA on 20 September 1862.

His carte-de-visite (CDV) is on a page in the Heyward Album at the University of South Carolina.
