James D Loades was a Sergeant in Company I of the 2nd Maryland Infantry when he was wounded in the side, probably near the Lower (Burnside’s) Bridge over the Antietam on 17 September 1862.

This photograph was taken in Paris, KY, probably in the Spring of 1863, soon after Loades was appointed Sergeant-Major of the regiment. It is offered for sale online by the Excelsior Brigade.
