A View From Fort Marcy
In front of the tent at the right of the picture sits William Arthur, brother of Chester A. Arthur, the future President. This View was taken from the fort down toward the camp. The Fourth New York Heavy Artillery was organized at New York, November, 1861 to February, 1862. It left for Washington on February 10th. Its first camp was five miles from Chain Bridge, and its second at Fort Marcy. These unusually clear photographs were treasured half a century by T. J. Lockwood, a member of the regiment.
