This fine photograph was contributed to John Henry Burnham‘s memorial by Chris Van Blargan. It was taken in Hartford, CT by Bartlett & Webster, probably soon after he was commissioned in August 1862.

Burnham was Adjutant of the 16th Connecticut Infantry at Antietam on 17 September 1862, and had the sad task of accounting for the field burials of the soldiers of the regiment who were killed there.
