Private Edwin R. Parkman was 30 years old when he enlisted in the 18th Light Artillery on 9/2/1864. He was promptly
transferred into the 25th NY Light Artillery. He served a little bit less than 1 year in total. The 25th was largely
recruited from Alabama with replacements coming from their sponsoring State of New York. They largely served guarding the
City of New Orleans. A fantastic period I.D. on the reverse with no backmark. The image had a crease across the middle and
a loss of the image on the left side. Parkman wears a shell jacket with brass shoulder scales and a kepi with a unit
I.D. on the crown, but at the angle the photo is taken, you can't quite make out what it says. #0005=$125.00
