This photograph in left profile is of Dr. Franklin R Garlock and was taken in 1905. It’s now in the collection of the Wisconsin Veteran’s Museum.

He was Corporal Garlock, Company A, 108th New York and a rookie soldier when he was horribly wounded at Antietam on 17 September 1862. He lost his right eye to a gunshot through his face and head, and another bullet took his right index finger.

But that was obviously not the end of his life story. He graduated from medical school in 1870 and practiced for at least 40 years in New York and Wisconsin.
