22nd & 56th Massachusetts WIA Veterans Memorial with war date image attached!
The veteran, Eben W. Pike, served in the 22nd and was discharged for being too young. He soon joined 56th Massachusetts Infantry and was wounded in the navel at the Battle of North Anna.
Original photograph attached to a large imprinted page with his record hand written in period ink. It measures roughly 16.5" x 11" and would frame beautifully. This is spectacular in person, truly one of a kind.
