Description The 17th New York Light Artillery east of the unfinished Capitol building May 3rd, 1863. Many hours were spent on restoring this image, the original broken glass plate negative of which is at the Library of Congress. Captain George T. Anthony became governor of Kansas in the mid 1870s. It was known as the 'Orleans Battery,' as most of the 230+ men who served were from Orleans County in western New York. Much more info is available in the book 'Hard Breathing Days - the Civil War Letters of Cora Beach Benton.' Image is sharp enough to identify all officers and at least one enlisted man! Find the grazing cow behind them. Where they stood is near RFK stadium. You will not be disappointed, unless you'll wish you got the biggest possible size!
