"Roster of Commissioned Officers of the 55th Regiment Mass. Vol. Infantry 1863-1865." Photo album compiled by Burt Green Wilder [subseries]:
This list replaces an earlier typed list that neither included names of officers whose photos are lacking, nor identified African-American officers, nor provided page numbers. A note on the earlier list says: "Orig. List sent to National Archives, 1961." Names are listed in the order in which they appear in the album, followed by the page number; lacking photos are noted.
This list indicates African-American officers, including those whose photos are lacking. To confirm which officers (including those lacking photos) were African- American, the following website was consulted: http://suvcw.org/mollus/usctofficers.htm ( U.S. Commissioned Officers of African-American Descent who served during the Civil War). [SUVCW stands for Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War; MOLLUS for Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States; and USCT for United States Colored Troops]. Where photo is lacking, or where given information is possibly uncertain, the designation [African-American] indicates confirmation via this website. Please note that the website list may be incomplete, so not all officers lacking photos in the album are fully identified.
Individual companies of the 55th are indicated for each person, when known, and/or the person's rank/membership in other army divisions, when known; This list does not record the complete military history accompanying each photo.
Photos of some of the persons in the album appear elsewhere (loose) in the collection, as indicated in the guide; some of these additional photos are duplicates, while others are post-war; Wilder wrote captions on many of them.
Letters to Wilder from some of these officers, and/or references to these officers, appear elsewhere in the collection.
All photos in the album are 4.0" x 2.5" cabinet cards; photographer/ studio is given when available.
