CdV of Civil War Union Amputee
Portrait of George Warner, with Henry S. Peck, New Haven, Connecticut studio backmark, penciled id on reverse. George Warner elisted in Company B, 20th Connecticut Infantry in August 1862 and was severely wounded at Gettysburg on July 3rd, losing both of his arms to amputation. On the third day the 20th was posted in woods "about 750 feet" in front of the far left of Culp's Hill to provide enfilade fire in case of a Confederate flank attack. Warner may have been wounded during the subsequent Ewell-Johnson assault, or more likely, from an errant 12th Corps artillery round that dropped into the exposed position along the axis of attack. Warner was discharged for disability in October 1863 and had this poignant photograph taken shortly thereafter.
