10 August 2020

Surgeon Abner Hard of the 8th Illinois Cavalry treated sick and wounded soldiers along the Army’s march from Washington to Sharpsburg. After Antietam he and his Assistant Surgeon Stull manned a hospital at Keedysville, MD. In 1868 he wrote and published the History of the Eighth Cavalry Regiment, Illinois Volunteers, which is where this etching of him (from a photograph) may be found.
