61st Virginia Infantry Photo

Below is a link to a carte-de-visite of Peleg Pritchard of the 61st Virginia Infantry. This is not an endorsement for the buying and selling of soldier images...but, this beats the trashbin.

Peleg Pritchard was born May 5, 1843. Enlisted as a 3rd Corporal on 11 July 1861 in Company A, 7th Battalion Virginia infantry [this unit later became Company A, 61st Virginia Infantry]. Wounded on October 20, 1864 at Burgess Mill. Resident of Berkley, outside of Norfolk, Virginia. Postwar, worked as a grocer, mail agent and railroad postal clerk. Died on June 5, 1900. The woman identified as Pritchard’s wife, may possibly be his younger sister.
