I wonder where the original of this image is today? This one is snipped from the newspaper, so there has to be an original somewhere? Perhaps it is in the hands of a collector and possibly unidentified? Hopefully, the collector who has a tintype of two South Carolina soldiers who look like they could be brothers will see this post and be able to put the names back together with the image.
Capt. Charner Greer (left) Company A, 18th South Carolina pictured with Capt. T. Jefferson Greer (right) Company B, 18th South Carolina. Charner Sanders Greer is recorded as the only member of Company A who came out of the Crater alive. Thomas Jefferson "T. Jeff" Greer lost his leg in the fight at Burgess's Mill.
