    Gee, a picture I actually found on the Internet.

    The picture is of Edward (William) Black, a drummer boy wounded at the age of 12.

    Answer:

    Edward (William) Black (1853–1872) was a drummer boy for the Union during the American Civil War. At twelve years old, his left hand and arm were shattered by an exploding shell. He is considered to be the youngest wounded soldier of the war.
