Lt. A. H. Granger, Union officer

Title

Lt. A. H. Granger, Union officer

Description

Sepia-toned portrait of a young man with a long goatee and full mustache wearing the uniform of a junior officer, possibly a Lieutenant, in the Union Infantry during the Civil War. His long frock coat has a single row of buttons and shoulder boards, and he wears both a belt and a sash at the waist. He has a pistol in his belt holster, and his hands rest upon a sword. There is a single stripe down the side of his dark pants. His kepi has the curled bugle of the Infantry on the front. He stands beside a classically styled pillar and the background behind him is romantically rural. This photo was included in a collection donated by a Forest Grove resident, Ruby Bamford. The Bamford family was from England, but lived in Illinois during the Civil War. They settled in the Gales Creek area in the early 1880s. It is not known whether the photos belonged to the Bamfords or to Mrs. Bamford's natal family before their donation.
