The Attached photo is Courtesy of the Late Dick Watts Collection, whose family was kind enough to allow a copy for Find a Grave.
The same photo appears in the 1903 book "They Sleep at Gettysburg: Massachusetts At Gettysburg" on page 46. It was this book that helped Dick to identify this long forgotten hero of the Civil War, who gave his last full measure of devotion to save the Union. It is fitting that the Flag of that Union for which he died for on the Fourth of July is in this Photo.
