This photograph of Captain Norwood P Hallowell is at the Massachusetts Historical Society.

Hallowell was a Harvard rower, Class of 1861, and was Captain of Company D, 20th Massachusetts Infantry by Antietam, where he was wounded in the arm. He was Commissioned Lieutenant Colonel of the famed 54th Massachusetts Infantry in May 1863 and took command after Colonel Shaw was killed at Fort Wagner in June.

He resigned due to lingering effects of his Antietam wound in November 1863 and was afterward a wool broker in New York and Boston.
