Pvt George F Fletcher

6 September 2020

The man in the upper right here, in uniform, is Private George F. Fletcher, newly enlisted in the 15th Massachusetts Infantry. He was wounded in the face at Antietam and recovered, only to be killed at Gettysburg in July 1863. His brothers Samuel and James were also in the regiment and James may be the young man at the upper left. James was killed at Antietam and Sam survived the war. Their parents, also pictured, are Margaret and Ephraim Fletcher.

This collection of 4 miniature ambrotype photographs in a single 3″x4-5/8″ case was contributed to George’s memorial on Findagrave by Norman Dagen.
