Philip H Foster (1862)

25 January 2024

Private Philip Henry Foster of the ill-fated 16th Connecticut Infantry was killed by a bullet to the chest at Antietam on 17 September 1862. This photograph, probably taken in July or August 1862 shortly after his enlistment, is thanks to collector Guy DeMasi and was forwarded to me by John Banks – thanks to you both!
