    Does anyone know of any photographs taken of the 15th New York Volunteer Cavalry, particularly Company H or Company G? I've attached a photo of my G-G-Grandfather Asa Sadder who joined this unit on August 27th of 1863 (just three weeks after his 16th birthday). This photo was taken in Washington D.C. in June of 1865 just before he was mustered out of the army.

    Unlike modern conflicts such as WW I and WW II, unit photographs were not widely taken in the Civil War. I know of no such photographs for the 15th New York Cavalry.

    You might contact the New York State Military Museum and Veterans Rsearch Center to see if they can be of any help.

    Greetings,

    Be glad to assist...
    Please send me a private message.

    The link provided by Legion Para is a good place to find photos in the NY State archives.

    Best-
