Our Citizen Soldiers
93rd Infantry Regiment

93rdInfHistoricalphoto-2mI
This informal photograph of the Ninety-third New York Infantry was taken in 1862 just before Antietam.
In it we see the quality of the men who dropped the pursuits of civil life and flocked to form the armies of the
North. Thus, in camp and on the battlefield the camera did its work and now takes us back over the four terrible
years, showing us to the minutest detail how our men marched and lived and fought. The youth of the troops
is strikingly evident in this picture as they stand assembled here with there arms hastily stacked for the ever-
pleasurable experience of having their pictures taken.
