The text on the verso notes that this carte de visite is a copy of an ambrotype found in the hands of Sgt. Humiston of the 154th New York Volunteers, found dead on the Gettysburg battlefield. A Philadelphia physician printed and sold these photographs to raise funds for support and education of the orphans.
