Andrew J Gile (c. 1859)

Here’s 30 year old Haverford, Massachusetts shoemaker Andrew Jackson Gile just before the war. He was killed at Antietam on 17 September 1862 about a month after he enlisted as a Private in the 35th Massachusetts Infantry.

This photograph is from My Great-Grandmother Judith Sargent Gile 1804-1891 – a book in the family by Winifred Jewel Harley. Thanks to Kristin Laing for that!
