Image Found!

17 10 2011

A while back in this post I asked for some assistance in finding images for Bull Run commanders. I got my first response yesterday from reader Bruce Baryla, who informed me that he had located a CDV of Col. George W. McLean of the 2nd NJ Infantry. The image is currently available for purchase sold on eBay here, where you’ll also find his biographical sketch of McLean. Bruce has given me permission to reproduce the image, and here it is below.

I still need all of these:

  • Capt. Otis Tillinghast
  • Surgeon William Shakespeare King
  • Capt. Josiah Howard Carlisle – 2nd US Arty
  • Capt. James Kelly – 69th NYSM

Col. George W.Mclean is my gr.gr grandfather.He had a long career in the service prior to the Civil War. An interesting side note to my family history is that his nephew was Gen.Franklin K. Gardner.Gardner was a major general in the confederate army.They were both West Pointers.As you can imagine it was a very sad period for my family. William Mclean , the colonel’s son was killed in the war. He was a young cavalry officer in a ny unit.

Found another one for you Harry. I was looking into Surgeon King and found a fine photo of him at the National Library of Medicine, online here: http://ihm.nlm.nih.gov/luna/servlet/view/search?q=B016408

Bon Appétit!
