Reunion of the Regiment on the Field of Antietam,

SEPTEMBER 17, 1891

Compiled and Published from Original Photographs taken on the Field, by Comrade A. F. Hall (of Co. H), Meriden, Conn.


   To my comrades of the Fourteenth Regiment, Connecticut Volunteers, and their friends, this Art Souvenir is respectfully dedicated, with a desire to place in your hands some suitable memento that may serve to commemorate our delightful and long to be remembered excursion to historic battle-fields, so ably planned and so successfully executed by our able Committee of the Regiment, Comrades John C. Broatch, Chaplain H. S. Stevens, J. W. Knowlton, Samuel H. Moore, Geo. N. Brigham, W. H. Tubbs and Benj. Hirst.

   The pictures here presented are produced by the Meriden Gravure Co. from photographs taken on the field during our visit. The selections are made from over one hundred views taken by the author and others, and covering such prominent features of the different fields as may be of especial interest to us, and those of the Second Army Corps, who with us touched elbows on those bloody fields during the dark days of the Rebellion in 1862 and 1863.

   Space forbids me to follow the desire to enlarge upon the vivid memories presented by our presence on the very spots where almost thirty years ago most of the survivors present took active part. The description by Capt. Long, Col. Broatch, Chaplain Stevens and others, the visit to the position of the 14th Connecticut Volunteers near Bloody Angle, at Gettysburg, Devil's Den, Round Top, Cemetery Hill, the Peach Orchard and Wheat Field, where so many brave men gave up their lives that the nation might live, the Reunion on the 17th of September on the field of Antietam, at the Roulette House the scene of our first engagement, the great battle of Antietam, the view of that grand scenery at Harper's Ferry, and our camp at Bolivar Heights and at Fredericksburg, we can never cease to remember.

Fraternally Yours,

A. F. Hall, Co. H, 14th Conn. Vols.
