From the New York Daily Herald of Thursday, 25 September 1862. Parked here for reference and as yet another go-back-and-check project: a list of those killed, wounded, and missing among the soldiers of the 42nd New York Infantrythe Tammany Regiment – at Antietam in September 1862.

(touch for the full list)

First on that list is the Adjutant, Lt Patrick James Downing. He’s seen below, at left, in a photo taken later in 1862 or early in 1863 with his brother Denis (1841-1871).

The picture, of unknown provenance, was shared online by the American Fenians blog in 2017.
